MSU volleyball picked 13th in preseason poll

The Minot State volleyball team was picked 13th out of 15 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference outfits Tuesday in the annual preseason coaches’ poll.

MSU finished in the same position last year after a 7-13 NSIC campaign (12-18 overall).

Jen Dixon will be a pivotal figure for the Beavers in 2014. She led MSU in kills (387), digs (361) and service aces (38) last season and is a returning All-NSIC second-team honoree.

Concordia-St. Paul was selected to finish atop the conference for an 11th straight year. The Golden Bears captured all 15 first-place votes and have won the last seven NCAA Division II national titles.
