Lady Warriors crack top five in latest NJCAA poll

The Lady Warriors celebrate in their game on Saturday (Jan. 26) against SWIC. Wabash Valley was rewarded for their 19-0 start by cracking the top five of the NJCAA Division I poll on Tuesday.

MOUNT CARMEL, Ill. -- When you enjoy an undefeated campaign to date, you're likely to receive some significant national attention. Such is the case with the Wabash Valley College women's basketball team. The 19-0 Lady Warriors continued their ascent in the national polls in the latest poll that was released on Tuesday.

WVC checks in at No. 5 in NJCAA Division I, checking just within the top five. It's an improvement from their No. 6 ranking last week and their 127-61 throbbing of SWIC assuredly helped the Lady Warriors' case.

Checking in just ahead of Wabash Valley in the top five, No. 1 South Georgia Tech, No. 2 Northwest Florida State, No. 3 Hutchinson (Kan.), and No. 4 Trinity Valley (Texas).

Gulf Coast State was slotted just behind Wabash Valley, coming in at No. 7. The Lady Warriors defeated GCS 68-65 back in November.

In their unblemished start, Wabash Valley is defeating opponents by an average margin of 42.7 points per game (100.3-57.6 ppg).

The Lady Warriors will look to extend their win streak to 20 games with a victory on the road against Southeastern Illinois College on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 1 p.m.
