BYU's women's volleyball and women's soccer teams will both be nationally ranked when they begin competition later this month.
Monday, the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) ranked BYU's women's volleyball team No. 9 in the country in its preseason poll.
Hopes are high for a phenomenal season in Provo because of the return of All-American Jennifer Hamson, who redshirted last year to concentrate on basketball.
Although she was drafted by the Los Angeles Sparks in April's WNBA Draft, Hamson spent the summer working with USA Volleyball and will fulfill a promise made last year to return to the BYU volleyball team for her final season of eligibility.<
