The Bobcats also enter the week ranked fifth in the nation in aces per set (2.65), as Megan Mitchell (Minden, Nev.) and Sariah Suryadevara (Cincinnati, Ohio) are both listed among the top 20 in the individual aces leaders.
Armstrong Atlantic State University (26-0) sits atop the region, followed by Wingate University (23-0), Flagler College (18-4), Lincoln Memorial University (16-5), and Catawba College (16-6).
