The Lady Builder’s loss against Friends Lady Falcons on Saturday was a tough one. The Lady Builders not only fell 61-52, but they also fell from the sixth Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. This is the first time this season the Lady Builders are not in it.

The team had been in the polls six times, changing their ranking each week.

With only 30 votes, the Lady Builders did not make it to the poll. Valley City State (ND), the last placed team in the poll, had 41 more points than the Lady Builders. Indiana Wesleyan continues to be first placed in the poll with 343 points and an impressive 21-1 overall record.

The Lady Builders will get a chance to climb up starting today when they visit Kansas Wesleyan Lady Coyotes. Next, the Lady Builders will host Sterling Lady Warriors on Jan. 26.

The Lady Builders stand 8-2 in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference and 13-6 overall.
