No. 25 CSU volleyball tabbed as MW preseason favorites by coaches

The Mountain West volleyball coaches poll that was released Wednesday placed the CSU volleyball team in a familiar position.

Winners of seven consecutive Mountain West championships, the Rams were closely chosen as the preseason favorites by the league’s coaches, receiving six of 11 possible first-place votes for a total of 96 points. Boise State, who finished second in MW play a year ago was picked second after getting four first-place votes and 92 total points. Rival Wyoming came in third garnering a single top-place vote and 80 points.
