Finding Position in an ordered list


I wonder if it is possible to use the knowledge
that a list in which I am looking for the position
of an element is ordered. I want a quicker solution then e.g.
lis={ac,dmk,rfg,sty,zxxer}
Position[lis,sty]

I am certainly interested in longer lists...

Thank you,

Janos
