CU, FSU, UC Top WVIAC Women's Basketball Coaches' Poll

(PRINCETON, W.Va.)---If the annual coaches' poll is any indication, the 2007-08 WVIAC women's basketball season is slated to be one of change.  The league's head coaches have selected Concord as the favorite to claim the school's first-ever WVIAC regular season title.  Traditional powerhouse Glenville State is picked eleventh after a tumultous off-season.  Add newcomers Pitt Johnstown and Seton Hill to the mix and it could be a very interesting season in the WVIAC women's basketball ranks.

Concord received nine first place votes to sit atop the poll.  Second place Fairmont State got four nods for the top spot and is second.  Charleston garnered the remaining two first place votes to place third.  West Liberty State and Shepherd round out the top five.
