The Dominican University men’s volleyball program is used to achieving accolades—and the Stars’ 2022 campaign is already one for the record books.  

The Stars are currently No. 1 in the national rankings in the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Division III National Poll. Dominican’s top rank is the first in program history.  

Dominican climbed to the No. 1 spot March 8 after a pair of decisive victories over Marian University and St. Norbert College, marking the first top national ranking for a Dominican athletics program in the NCAA era. 

The Stars continued their historic season with a four-set victory over 2021 Midwest Collegiate Volleyball League champion Fontbonne University on March 10. Dominican’s win was the Stars’ eighth-straight victory, improving their overall record to 12-1.  

Dominican returns to action at noon Saturday, March 12, in the Igini Sports Forum against conference foe Benedictine University. Live coverage of the game will also be available via
