The Eastern Oregon volleyball team remained in the top five in the NAIA coaches’ poll despite its loss to Southern Oregon last weekend.

The Mountaineers slipped one spot to No. 4 as they enter their final weekend of regular-season play. The Raiders, who moved into a tie for first with EOU in the Cascade Collegiate Conference with their win last week, moved from No. 9 to No. 7. 

Eastern traded places with Indiana Wesleyan in the poll. 

The top five in the nation are undefeated and top-ranked Northwestern (Iowa), Missouri Baptist, Indiana Wesleyan, EOU and Park (Missouri), the defending national champions.

Corban (No. 14) and College of Idaho (No. 25) are the other ranked CCC teams.
