A 3-0 week has vaulted the Billings West volleyball team into the Class AA coaches poll.

The Lady Bears earned wins over rival Billings Skyview, Great Falls High and CMR last week to improve to 7-2 in the Eastern A.

West needed five sets to get past both the Lady Falcons and the Lady Rustlers. The program beat Great Falls High in four sets.

Helena Capital fell from the polls after earning a split against the Kalispell schools – a sweep of Flathead on Friday and a three-set loss to Glacier the following day.

The Lady Bruins are still receiving votes in the poll.

The top four teams – Missoula Sentinel, Billings Senior, Bozeman and Kalispell Glacier – remained the same. The Lady Spartans are still perfect (16-0 overall, 9-0 in Western AA) while Senior has yet to lose an Eastern AA match.
