...for the 3rd straight week!! This girl is just awesome, and the volleyball team in general is also making inroads into the elite programs in the nation. At this rate, FIU, who already received 9 votes in the AVCA Top 25 coaches poll, could soon be ranked among the top 25 teams in the nation...FIU's votes would put us tied for #40th with Tennessee.

Actually, FIU Volleyball is ranked # 18 in the first official RPI rankings released.

Congrats to Yarimar and to the volleyball team! ... =204812564

NEW ORLEANS - Senior Yarimar Rosa has been tabbed Sun Belt Conference Volleyball Player of the Week for the third consecutive week, as determined by a vote of the league's 13 head coaches. Rosa now owns a career Sun Belt record 12 SBC Player of the Week citations.

Rosa recorded a team-high 40 kills over both matches for a 6.67 kills per set mark. She secured 21 kills versus Denver (7.00 kills per set) and 19 kills against North Texas (6.33 kills per set). Versus the Pioneers, the outside hitter tallied a hitting percentage of .469 and also contributed on the defensive end with nine digs. Against the Mean Green, Rosa hit at a clip of .361 and once again delivered on defense with five digs and one block.

FIU is off to its best start in school history with an overall record of 17-2 and an unblemished mark of 7-0 in league play. The Panthers received nine votes in the latest edition of the AVCA Division I Top 25 Coaches Poll, released Oct. 12, and ranks 18th in the first 2009 NCAA Women's Volleyball RPI Rankings, also released this afternoon.
