KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Grand View closed the 2017 regular season as the top-ranked team in the latest NAIA Men's Volleyball Coaches' Top 10 Poll on Tuesday afternoon.

The Vikings (20-3) swept through Heart of America Athletic Conference play with a perfect 10-0 mark and enter postseason play on a 12-match winning streak. Grand View claimed the top spot in the Heart Tournament, April 7-8 on Grand View's campus, and earned a bye into the semifinal round. The Vikings will play Friday at 2 p.m.

 

The top five places in the poll were unchanged from the previous poll as reigning national champion Missouri Baptist held the No. 2 spot, followed by Park (Mo.), Warner (Fla.) and Ottawa (Kan.).
