Flying Dutch Fan:
Big match tonight as #5 Hope travels to Grand Rapids to face #1 Calvin.  I attended this same match last year and it was an awesome thing to see - looking forward to an electric atmosphere and a Hope win.

Wish I could be there.  Calvin had the edge last year but the matches with the Dutch were extremely competitive and well played and the atmosphere was fantastic.  I would expect the same tonight.

Check out the latest post on the AVCA D3 Top 25 board  (link will indicate there's a bit more on the line tonight.)

Dark Knight:
Just before the match, Hope went up to #2 in the rankings, so the Calvin-Hope match was #1 vs. #2.

The atmosphere was indeed electric with 2100 people. The student section was packed and very loud. It was hard-fought and well-played. It felt like a tournament game.

Calvin ended up on top with a three-set win, the last set 28-26.

Dark Knight:
According to Massey's computer rankings, Calvin's volleyball team would be #12 in D II. It would be #85 in D I, in the top quarter of D I teams.

Is there less of a difference between D I, D II, and D III in volleyball than in basketball or football? I can't imagine any D III basketball or football team better than three quarters of the D I teams.

Or maybe comparisons between divisions are inaccurate because there are so few inter-divisional games.
