MILWAUKEE -- The Wisconsin Lutheran College women's basketball team has been mentioned in the list of "others to watch" in the Women's DIII News Preseason Top 25 Poll released by the publication this month.
The recognition comes after a season which saw Wisconsin Lutheran finish 26-4 and win its first-ever NCAA Tournament game, a 73-59 second-round triumph over Wis.-La Crosse. The Warriors also finished 16-2 in the Northern Athletics Conference to win their third straight division crown.
WLC returns four starters from last season's team in senior Rachel Johnson (Milwaukee, Wis./Wisconsin Lutheran) and juniors Alyssa Allister (Lake Mills, Wis./Lakeside Lutheran), Krissy Day (West Allis, Wis./Wisconsin Lutheran) and Shavon Dillon (Milwaukee, Wis./Hope School).
Amherst College, last year's NCAA Tournament champion, was ranked as the top team in the poll. The Women's DIII News has been the leading publication covering Division III women's basketball since 1993.
Wisconsin Lutheran will begin its 2011-2012 campaign by hosting the Dunn's Sporting Goods Tip-Off Tournament November 18-19. The Warriors will host Bethel (Minn.) in their first game of the tournament on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Recreation Complex.
