CHARLOTTE, N.C.- Following a pair of 3-0 sweeps last week, the Florida SouthWestern State Buccaneers remained the top ranked team in the country for the third consecutive week on Monday, holding steady at #1 with their 14-2 record on the year.
The Bucs went 2-0 last week, extending their program best win streak to 11 while improving to 14-2 overall and 9-0 in Suncoast Conference play on the season. Thursday the Bucs took care of State College of Florida in a three set sweep before downing Santa Fe 3-0 for the second time in a week to remain unbeaten in conference play.
