For the first time in program history, Westmont Volleyball is the top-ranked team in the NAIA. The Warriors, who are the only undefeated team out of 219 NAIA programs, have earned their number one ranking by producing a 25-0 record.
So, what does the number one team do after learning they have moved to the top of the list?
“My team is playing freeze tag in the gym,” said Westmont head coach Patti Cook, “and I need to get back in there and be the referee.”
Cook is determined to help her team keep everything in perspective.
“The temptation would be to feel pressure, but we would be foolish to let that get to us,” reflected Cook. “Nothing has changed on our end. We are still going to play our own game and play every single match like it is the most important match of the season. We need to continue to keep our heads down and stay humble and hungry.”
