William Penn’s women’s basketball team is ranked 20th in the nation in this week’s NAIA Division One poll. Is Coach Steve Williamson surprised that his team is nationally ranked?
“Yes and no. I mean, we do have a lot of new kids playing, so I didn’t know how long it would take them to get adjusted to our style and our system and what we want to do and our expectations. But, again, we have some great leadership that came back in Vashti (Nwagbaraocha) and Jenna (Santi) and Kate Ylitalo.”
The Statesmen women will take an 8-1 record into Saturday’s (12/8) 2:00 game with Peru State at Penn Gymnasium.
