Rankings
We are back down to 13 for our final regular season poll of 2014. Keep in mind; the rankings are based on dominance by class, strength of schedule, and how hot a team is.
The second edition of the MHSVCA statewide volleyball rankings has eight schools ranked in the top 10 of their respective classes.
Each week Ozarks Sports Zone will rank the top 10 teams in the area based on dominance by class.
More deserving teams equals more spots in this week’s poll. Find the area’s pound-for-pound top 15 teams here.
