The Gophers volleyball team has climbed from No. 9 to No. 7 in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association pole.

The news comes out following two impressive victories last weekend in which Minnesota beat Michigan State in five sets and No. 11 Michigan in four sets.

This marks the first season since 2004 that the Gophers have been ranked in the top ten for eight consecutive weeks.
