CBC teams ranked in NCCAA
For the second week in a row, Central Baptist College had teams ranked in the National Christian College Athletic Association poll.
The women were ranked fifth, dropping one spot from fourth, and the men showed up in the poll for the first time, earning the 10th spot.
The Mustangs beat NCAA Division II opponent Ouachita Baptist last week to get to 4-0 and earn their first ranking in the NCCAA poll, while also receiving votes in the NAIA poll that came out on Dec. 5.
The women’s team dropped one spot from the previous poll after not playing last week. This is the first time in school history, dating back to 2003, that a team has been ranked in back-to-back polls, whether NCCAA or NAIA.
Both teams return to action on Thursday night in St. Louis, Mo. The women will take on St. Louis College of Pharmacy at 5:30 p.m., in an American Midwest Conference game and the men will follow.
