LEBANON, Tenn.--The NAIA national offices released the first Women's Tennis Coaches' Top-25 poll of the season today, the Phoenix placing 23rd.

The Phoenix ranked 21st in the preseason poll, but a recent loss to a Tennessee Wesleyan team that was receiving votes in the preseason poll knocked Cumberland down a few spots. Conference foes Lindsey Wilson (11), Georgetown College (16), and University of the Cumberlands (17) all placed higher than Cumberland in the poll.

Cumberland next turns to the UNOH Racers Indoor Invitational this weekend in Lima, Ohio, facing No.9 Indiana Wesleyan and RV Indiana Tech Friday and Lawrence Tech and Northwestern Ohio Saturday.
