It's been bumpy, but it's early.

After another .500 weekend, the UAA volleyball team dropped again in the national coaches poll, AVCA-American Volleyball Coaches Association, from 14th to 18th on Monday.

The Seawolves split four matches in their weekend tournament at the Alaska Airlines Center -- topping Chico State and 15th ranked Concordia University Irvine. But losses to Cal Baptist (24th) and Cal State San Bernardino (11th) suffered a pair of losses keeping their record at 4-4. 

UAA heads out on the road to UAF Tuesday with matches in Billings against Rocky Mountain and Montana State Billings Friday and Saturday.
