The Ohio State women’s volleyball team has its highest national ranking in program history, coming in at No. 3 in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association poll earlier this week. It marks the highest spot for the Buckeyes since back in 1994, when they settled fourth in the final three polls.
Ohio State is a perfect 8-0 on the young season behind head coach Jen Flynn Oldenburg. Her group has swept six opponents and most recently dominated the VCU Invitational.
Junior setter Mac Podraza (Sunbury, Ohio) currently leads the nation with 11.96 assists per set, benefitted by the hitting duo of junior Gabby Gonzales and sophomore Emily Londot. They are combining to post over seven kills per frame.
However, things get more challenging for the squad moving forward. A home-and-home series with Notre Dame this weekend will be followed by critical matches at No. 9 Purdue and No. 20 Penn State.
Fans will have the opportunity to check out Ohio State inside The Covelli Center for its home opener come Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m.
