Golden Eagles Women's Basketball

The preseason NJCAA Division III Women’s Basketball poll has posted and the two-time defending national champion Rock Valley College Golden Eagles are perched at the top spot.

The Golden Eagles will celebrate last year’s national championship with a ring ceremony and championship banner unveiling prior to their game on Saturday, November 2. The ceremony will begin at approximately 5:15 p.m., followed by the Golden Eagles beginning their quest for a three-peat by taking on Oakton Community College in the first game of the 2013-2014 season.

In the last three seasons under head coach Misty Opat, RVC has amassed an overall record of 84-16 and a conference record of 34-1.
