The Gophers women's volleyball team retained its No. 4 national ranking in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association poll released Monday.

Minnesota still has a perfect record at 7-0 without dropping a set after sweeping the Diet Coke Classic this weekend at the Sports Pavilion against Duke, Ball State and Western Illinois.

The top-three did shake-up a bit as Penn State dropped from first to third. Southern California and Texas moved up to take the top-two spots, respectively.

The Gophers return to action this weekend in Kentucky for the Bluegrass Battle against Louisville and Kentucky.
