The Lady Lancers landed in the NAIA Top 25 Coaches’ Poll for the first time, earning the No. 23 spot from the national raters.
Grace, in just its fifth season of existence under head coach Denny Duncan, was receiving votes a month ago. But after claiming the 2019 NCCAA national championship in October, Grace catapulted up to No. 23 in the NAIA.
This is the final poll of the fall season with the next poll coming in March.
The Crossroads League is one of the most well-represented conferences in the poll. Joining No. 23 Grace is No. 4 Taylor, No. 10 Indiana Wesleyan and No. 13 St. Francis.
