After a 5-1 start to their 2012-13 season the Valley City State University Viking Women's Basketball team has garnered a #19 ranking in the first NAIA Women's Division II Basketball Poll.
After receiving votes and being one spot out of the top 25 in the Pre-Season Poll the Vikings jumped into the top 20 and sport a five game win streak after dropping their season opener to then ranked #2 and three time defending champion Northwestern College by three points.
The Vikings rank number two statistically in Total Rebound Defense per game, pulling in over 29 rebounds per game and number three in the nation in Field Goal Percentage, shooting 50.2% as a team.
