The Kansas Jayhawks volleyball team is ranked for the first time since 2005.
The Kansas Jayhawks volleyball squad has started off the season strong, and are now ranked in the Top 25 of the coaches poll for the first time since 2005. The 14-2 Jayhawks join Texas, Kansas State and Iowa State as Big 12 members in the rankings.
Head coach Ray Bechard said in a story by KUsports.com that as good as it is to be ranked, they won't be changing anything about their process for going into games:
"To me, it doesn’t change our process, our preparation or how we’ll go about handling our business. From a fan perspective, I can see where there’s some fun in that. From a program perspective, it’s great. You just can’t afford to lose sight of the process. Our focus has to stay on one match at a time and what’s our next mission, otherwise we stub our toe and we can’t afford to do that."
Kansas has gone 2-0 in Big 12 games so far this year and will face off against West Virginia on Wednesday. They have gone 1-2 away from Lawrence so far this season.
