Kansas City, MO: The NAIA has released its fifth ranking for the 2021-22 season, and Alice Lloyd College sits just outside the top 25. The Eagles are currently ranked 26th out of 232 total NAIA teams.
The Pippa Passes club made a huge jump over the past two weeks. This rise is based on the Eagles knocking off the 23rd ranked West Virginia Tech Golden Bears (#15 RPI) and highly regarded Rio Grande Red Storm over the past week.
The Eagles received 128 votes in the latest poll, which is a huge increase from the 11 votes received on January 13th.
ALC is off to a fantastic start as they currently possess a 19-0 record. This makes them one of only two remaining unbeaten teams in the country. Additionally, ALC was ranked # 24th in the nation in the recently released RPI Rankings.
The Eagles return to action this Thursday, January 27th when play host to the Asbury Eagles at 7:00 pm. They return to conference play on Saturday, January 29th when they travel to Ohio Christian University for a 1:00 pm tilt.
