LA CROSSE, Wis.— The Viterbo women's basketball team is ranked 8th nationally in the NAIA Division II ratings which were released today (Tuesday).

This season, the V-Hawks have proven to be a team to beat, having defeated four of the top 25 teams (Cardinal Stritch, St. Ambrose, Hastings, and Grandview). Viterbo is also responsible for handing 7th ranked Cardinal Stritch (18-1) its only loss.
