LADY SALUQIS RISE TO NINTH IN NJCAA RANKINGS

The Southwest women’s basketball team moved up two spots to number nine in this week’s National Junior College Athletic Association Division 1 poll.  The Lady Saluqis, coached by Andrea Martre, are currently 6-0 on the season including 4-0 in the TJCCAA.

Unranked in the NJCAA pre-season poll, Southwest entered the Top 25 at number 11 last week following conference wins over Roane State, Walters State, Chattanooga State, and Motlow State.  Next up for the Lady Saluqis is a matchup with conference rival Cleveland State at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 1 at the Verties Sails Gymnasium.
