The NCCAA released their rankings today and the Pioneers men's and women's basketball programs were both in them.
The Men's Pioneers team sitting at 3-4 have wins over NCCAA opponents Bob Jones, Boyce College, and #8 Grace Christian Tigers. The Pioneers who are ranked #3 have the opportunity to improve on that ranking tonight as they go on the road to play Welch College before going to face #11 Great Lakes Christian and #8 Grace Christian this weekend.
The Lady Pioneers are ranked #9 but are sitting at 0-0 and have yet to start their season. The Lady Pioneers season will kick off Saturday as they will travel to Welch College, before facing a tough week next week where they will play NAIA opponents in Brescia and Oakland City, USCAA opponent UC-Clermont, and #2 Pensacola Christian.
The Pioneers athletic department is excited to be able to have two teams ranked in the top 10 in the country and will look to be able to build off this as they get into the bulk of the season.
