Achievements and a level of high excellence has become a new normal for the Our Lady of the Lake University Women’s basketball since Christopher Minner acquired the head coach position back in 2012.
Last week the team received their highest ranking in Our Lady of the Lake University history by ranking No. 4 in the NAIA Division I Women’s Basketball Coaches’ poll.
The newest poll makes the Women’s team the highest ranked
women’s sports team in history for all colleges and universities in San Antonio creating a new city record.
“You got to build yourself up to those rankings and the fact that we’ve been ranked in the top 15 the past couple years creates an accumulation. It’s really a statement of not only of this year’s team, but the past three teams,” said Minner.
The Saints are on the highest winning streak in OLLU history with an 18-game winning streak. There are eight conference games left in the season. The national tournament is set to begin in March.
