The Concordia women’s basketball team has completed the 2012-13 season with a postseason ranking of No. 9. The NAIA released the complete postseason NAIA Division II Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs spent the entire 2012-13 season ranked in the top 10 – a total of 13 polls – and now own an active streak of 26-straight top 25 mentions. Under head coach Drew Olson, the program has finished the season ranked in four of seven years and has appeared in the top 25 at least once in six of those seven seasons.

The four-straight No. 1 rankings to begin this season were the most for the program since the nine-consecutive appearances atop the poll in 2002-03. Since Nov. 28, 2011, Concordia has been placed in the top 10 of every poll – a total of 26.

Last season the Bulldogs appeared at No. 3 in the postseason poll after advancing to the semifinals of the national tournament.

This year’s postseason edition included three GPAC teams other than Concordia: No. 3 Morningside, No. 4 Northwestern and No. 12 Briar Cliff.
