After an impressive start to the season, which included a seven game winning streak, the Augustana Vikings women's basketball team is at the top of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) table with 16 points, four points ahead of second place NAIT Ooks in the North Division and overall leader by four points in the ACAC. They've also nabbed a top 10 spot in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA), moving into ninth place this week after they split the weekend with the NAIT Ooks.
Coach Robyn Fleckenstein is proud of her players and the results they've achieved so far this season. When asked if she's surprised by how well her team has been doing so far, she replied, "I suppose so, yes, very pleasantly." Fleckenstein commended her players on their off-season training and coming into the season ready to play their best. "I knew we had a lot of players who put in a ton of time in the off season, and that they were very ready to have a competitive season, but I have been so thrilled to see their collective growth was also affected. They push each other and teach each other and it's a great atmosphere.
