The Saints went 2-0 since the last poll was released on Oct. 3, and are 17-4 on the year -- including a 5-1 mark in Frontier Conference play.
Montana Tech moved into the Top 25, coming in at No. 23 after notching four wins in California, including a win over 19th-ranked Biola. The Diggers are 15-7 on the season and 3-3 in conference play. They are the only other Frontier team in the Top 25.
The rivals meet Thursday at the PE Center in a battle of ranked teams. The Saints are two matches up on the rest of the conference in the loss column and are 4-0 at home this season. First serve is scheduled for 7 p.m.
