Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - It's been a great start to the season for the MSU Moorhead volleyball team. The Dragons are off to an 8-1 start.

Of those eight wins, three have come against teams ranked in the Top 25. The Dragons themselves are ranked 22nd, the first time since 2005 they've appeared in the poll, which has everyone fired up but also realistic.

Meredith Egeland, MSUM Senior Middle Hitter: β€œIt's an awesome feeling. I guess senior year I never thought we'd be ranked. But our conference is still really good so we know we'll have to work really hard every day because we're not there yet.”

Tammy Blake, MSUM Head Coach (18th year): β€œI think it builds confidence going into this tough conference we have. It also gives us some credibility going into conference that you can't overlook our program. The biggest thing we have this year is we have a lot of depth in our program.”

MSUM opens conference play this weekend at St. Cloud and Duluth.
