Chipola Climbs in National and Regional Rankings
November 16, 2009
After a road trip that included four games in four days, the Chipola Men’s Basketball team improved their overall record to 5-0 on the season and also climbed in the weekly polls.
In the first regular season NJCAA National Poll of the 2009 season, the Chipola Indians claimed the #10 spot. This extends the program’s record of 77 consecutive weeks being ranked nationally in the top 10. The streak is the longest active streak in the country.
With wins over Bevill State, Atlanta Metro, Georgia Perimeter, and Northwest Shoals, the Indians received a #3 ranking in the FCCAA Men’s Basketball Coaches’ Poll, up one position from last week. The Indians are ranked behind Central Florida (#1) and Northwest Florida State (#2).
Chipola will return to action on Friday, November 27 in the Rick Flores Thanksgiving Classic in Niceville, Florida. The Indians will play Mississippi Elite on Friday afternoon at 3:30pm and nation JUCO powerhouse Howard College on Saturday at 3:30pm.
