D III Women's Volleyball

A source for NCAA Division III women's volleyball info and opinion, with a focus on the Midwest and Central regions

Coaches, SIDs make their 2013 predictions

I decided to wait for most of the Central and Midwest region conference previews and lump them into one post this season. Links are to each conference’s preseason release. Teams listed are the preseason favorites, according to either the conferences’ coaches or sports information directors.

Turns out that I agree with each of the conference preseason favorites so far. I will update this post if the other league poll is released, but the UAA does not typically do preseason polls.

College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin: Elmhurst
Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference: Wartburg
Midwest Conference: Cornell
Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference: St. Thomas
Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference*: Benedictine
St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference: Webster
University Athletic Association: [Washington-St. Louis]
Upper Midwest Athletic Conference: Northwestern
Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference: Wisconsin-Whitewater
*Changed name to avoid “NAC” confusion with Division III’s New England-based North Atlantic Conference

Link to my predictions for all Pool A conferences in 2013.
I’ve correctly predicted 61-of-84 conference winners over the past two seasons. I hope to improve that rate this year.
