John Brown Gets Regional Ranking, Sweeps Bacone

Siloam Springs, Ark. (September 27, 2005) — The John Brown Golden Eagles were ranked #3 in NAIA Region VI when the weekly regional volleyball ratings were released on Monday. The Golden Eagles had just finished a 5-match sweep of the Region VI Challenge last weekend, including a 3-2 victory over the former region leader, Houston Baptist. New national ratings will be released Wednesday.

On Tuesday night, the Golden Eagles needed just 55 minutes to defeat Bacone (Okla.) 3-0 on the road in Muskogee. Game scores were 30-6, 30-10, 30-18. The match gave the Golden Eagles (14-4) a chance to rest some players and experiment with several different lineups.

John Brown plays next this weekend at the Lindenwood Tournament in St. Charles, Mo.
