Men's Exhibition Volleyball Game
The Baruch College men’s volleyball team faced off against the Division I, Ivy League Princeton University on Apr. 14, in Princeton, N.J.
The Division III Bearcats lost three sets to one: 29-31, 11-25, 25-23, 15-25. But the loss did little to tarnish what has been a remarkable season. Days earlier the men’s volleyball team won its fourth straight CUNY Athletic Conference championship.
This year’s team roster, mostly made of talented and highly recruited underclassmen, has surpassed expectations by winning 20-plus matches for the seventh consecutive season. Impressive, considering last year’s team graduated two All-Americans and played with an experienced roster that reached the Final Four for the first time in school history for any sport.
In fact, the men’s volleyball program has been one of the most successful Baruch intercollegiate teams. The last time the team failed to be nationally ranked in the NCAA Division III Poll was the end of the 2009 season.
Says Athletics Director Ray Rankis, “The men’s volleyball program has maintained a winning tradition and seems poised to make another run at a prestigious Final Four as the roster gains more experience.”
