2021 NAIA Women’s Volleyball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll – No. 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Midland (Neb.) claimed the No. 1 spot in the second regular-season edition of the 2021 NAIA Women’s Volleyball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll.
- The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Association of Independent Institutions and Unaffiliated Groups.
- The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 30 points for each first-place vote, 29 for second place and so on through the list.
- The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
- Teams that receive only one point on the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”
