Along with the preseason team, SEC coaches also voted on the anticipated order of finish for the conference, ranking Kentucky in the third position behind Texas and Florida.

Kentucky has the second-most players on the Preseason All-SEC teams with 3, just behind the Longhorns, who have 4.

UK volleyball has won every SEC title since 2017, but with Texas winning the last two national championships and now joining the SEC, UK volleyball faces a new challenge this upcoming season.
