KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Missouri Baptist remains at No.1 in the preseason edition of the NAIA’s 2021 Top 25 Women’s Volleyball Coaches after winning the 2020 national title.

The Braves finished 2020 in the no. 21 and had a record of 31-9. Ottawa was the KCAC regular season champion and tournament champion. OU also won their NAIA opener and qualified for the NAIA final venue in Sioux City, Neb.

Survey methodology

The poll was voted on by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, the Association of Independent Institutions and unaffiliated groups.

The Top 25 is determined by a point system based on how each voter ranks the top teams. A team receives 30 points for each vote for first place, 29 for second place, and so on through the list.

The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-scoring is considered a low score) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for each ballot (including including the reduced-cost ballots) on which the teams appear.
Teams that receive only one point on the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”
