Tech Resurges into Top 10 in AVCA Top 25

LEXINGTON, Ky. Georgia Tech volleyball (13-4, 6-2 ACC) has been ranked No. 10 in the AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 Women’s Poll, the organization announced on Monday. The White and Gold’s reentry into the top 10 ties the seventh highest ranking received by the Yellow Jackets in program history, joining the 2003 squad.

Georgia Tech’s selection marks the sixth appearance in the AVCA’s top 10 in seven polls this season.

Reappearing in the top 25 for the first time since 2005 at No. 12 on Sept. 30, 2020, Tech has since been listed in 47 straight top 25 polls to date.

Tech is one of three ACC teams inside the top 10 alongside No. 2 Louisville and No. 8 Pitt. Throughout the Jackets’ gauntlet, the White and Gold have already faced four top-10 opponents this season, including a sweep of formerly No. 10 BYU. Georgia Tech is still slated for a pair of rematches against the Cardinals and the Panthers.

Each of the aforementioned teams reached the NCAA Tournament in 2021 as Louisville and Pitt each advanced to the Final Four while BYU and recent foe No. 6 Ohio State both played into the Sweet 16. The Jackets eliminated the Buckeyes during their Elite Eight run.

As a unit, Georgia Tech is currently second in the ACC in both kills per set (13.74) and assists per set (12.67). The Yellow Jackets are also sitting in fourth in the league in hitting percentage (.257).

Individually, senior outside hitter Julia Bergmann continues to lead the ACC in kills per set (5.28) and points per set (5.92) as she’s fourth in the NCAA in both. The decorated attacker also recently climbed deeper into the Tech record books as she moved to fifth all time in career aces (149) and ninth in program history in career kills (1,497).

Tech has won 71 of its last 87 matches dating back to 2019. The Yellow Jackets have also won 42 of their last 48 matches at home in O’Keefe Gymnasium, earning the program’s 300th win inside the raucous arena earlier this season.

Georgia Tech will next return home to host Boston College (14-8, 2-6 ACC) on Friday at 7 p.m. and Syracuse (9-9, 5-3 ACC) on Sunday at 1 p.m. in O’Keefe Gymnasium. Both contests will be broadcast on ACC Network Extra.
