Tarleton State’s women’s basketball team reached its highest ranking in the USA Today/ESPN Division II Coaches Poll this week, coming in at 15th in the latest edition.

The TexAnns (11-1, 2-0 LSC) have opened Lone Star Conference play with two consecutive wins.

Tarleton travels to Texas A&M-Kingsville at 1 p.m. Saturday as three of its next four games are away from Stephenville.

“It’s a long road and we start it off at a tough place to play,” Tarleton State coach Ronnie Hearne said. “We are definitely going to have to be ready to play.”

The TexAnns have won eight straight, the third-longest streak during Hearne’s tenure.

“I think they could go anywhere,” Hearne said. “I have a lot of confidence in this team.”
