KANSAS CITY - The Marian volleyball team will open the 2017 season just outside of the top 25 as the Knights received votes in the NAIA Coaches' Preseason Top 25 Poll. Marian received 18 votes and is listed 37th in the poll.

Marian will take on four teams currently ranked in the poll, including two matchups with No. 21 Indiana Wesleyan. Marian opens the season next Wednesday at No. 35 IU Kokomo. Coach Ashlee Pritchard's squad will then play in the St. Xavier/Trinity Christian crossover tournament next weekend, where one of the matches will be played against No. 34 St. Francis (Ill.). The Knights will also take on No. 22 Lourdes in October.  

The Knights were selected to finish second in the Crossroads League behind Indiana Wesleyan Conference Preseason Poll. The Knights finished fourth in the regular season last season before finishing the year in the semi-final round of the Crossroads League Tournament.
