CCNY Men's Volleyball Program Ranked Among Best in the U.S. for Student-Athletes

NCSA's 2019 NCSA Power Rankings, an annual list of the top colleges and universities in the U.S. for student-athletes, ranked CCNY's men's volleyball program 92nd among 100 NCAA men's volleyball programs across four-division levels (DI, DII, DIII, and NAIA).

NCSA Power Rankings offer a comprehensive analysis of the best NCAA and NAIA schools across the country. Colleges and universities are ranked overall and broken out by division and sport into the top schools for 2019.

Unlike traditional power rankings which list schools based purely on athletic performance, the NCSA Power Rankings evaluate colleges and universities on a range of criteria that student-athletes find most important when considering potential schools including athletics, academics and, for the first time, affordability.

"Our research shows that student-athletes are more likely to find the right college when they consider a variety of factors," said NCSA President Lisa Strasman. "Each year, the NCSA Power Rankings analyze schools based on the criteria athletes and families find most important, and this year, CCNY stood out among all U.S. colleges and universities as one of the Best Schools in the U.S. for Student-Athletes."

CCNY's men's volleyball program is coming off of a successful season in 2019, finishing the regular season with a 15-4 overall record that included an 11-match winning streak and secured the No. 2 seed in the CUNY Athletic Conference Championship Tournament.

As a team, the Beavers earned the NCAA DIII Statistical title after leading the nation in aces per set for the second straight year. Freshman Xhulio Myftari was voted as the conferences' Player of the Year, after leading the country this past season in kills per set (5.14), aces per set (1.094) and points per set (6.77).

In July 2019, head men's and women's volleyball coach Andrijana Todorovic was selected to present at the 2019 American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Convention in December.

Since 2010, NCSA Power Rankings have recognized the Best Schools in the U.S. for Student-Athletes, evaluating colleges and universities on criteria that matters most to student-athletes and providing a valuable tool to families researching potential schools.
