Concordia moves up a spot in latest NAIA top 25 poll

The Bulldog women’s basketball team moved up one spot to sixth in the latest NAIA Top 25 Poll.  Concordia currently has a 14-2 overall record to go along with a 7-2 mark in conference play. 

Concordia went 1-1 last week.  The Bulldogs suffered a 74-67 loss at then #20 Northwestern College before earning a 65-54 victory over Dordt College at home this past Saturday.  Despite the loss at Northwestern, Concordia has won five out of its last six games.  So far this year, Concordia has three wins over teams currently in the top 25 or receiving votes in the poll.  

The Great Plains Athletic Conference currently has five teams in the NAIA’s top 15.  Briar Cliff moved up a spot to second in the latest poll, while Morningside remained one spot in front of Concordia in fifth.  Northwestern College jumped all the way up from 20th to 10th.  Hastings College slipped from eighth to 14th, while Mount Marty College received votes in this week’s poll.  

The 7th-ranked Bulldogs have a huge week.  Concordia travels to #14 Hastings College on Wednesday, followed by a trip to #5 Morningside College on Saturday.
