The regular season has come to an end for most South Dakota volleyball teams. Here are the top teams to watch for as the playoffs begin.

This week's South Dakota Media Volleyball Poll features no changes in the top-ranked teams in each class. Rapid City Stevens, Sioux Falls Christian, and Northwestern remain on top of their classes with the postseason around the corner.

Two changes took place across the entire poll this week. Phillip has jumped into the #5 spot this week in Class B and pushed Ethan out. Phillip opens the postseason hosting a Region 7 quarterfinal round game. In Class AA, Mitchell has returned to the top-five with two games remaining in their regular season schedule.
