With a trio of three-game sweeps against conference opponents last week, the Leopards moved into the No. 25 spot in the latest AVCA Poll released on Tuesday. The ranking marks the first time La Verne has appeared in the national poll since Sept. 22, 2009.
The Leopards are among three teams from the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference currently ranked in the poll, along with No. 8 Cal Lutheran and No. 22 Chapman. The Leos concluded the regular season with a four-match win streak en route to a 21-4 overall record along with a 13-3 mark in the SCIAC.
All four of the Leopards' losses this season have come from teams currently ranked in the AVCA Top 25.
La Verne earned the No. 3 seed for the SCIAC Postseason Tournament and will draw No. 2 seed Chapman in semifinal action on Thursday.
