Bears’ Softball maintains #2 national ranking in NJCAA DII Regular Season Poll

April 09, 2014

Defending Region I Champs’ 2nd straight week in 2nd, 14th straight poll in NJCAA Top 3

 

Colorado Springs, CO – April 9, 2014 -- Phoenix College is proud to announce that for the second straight week, the Bears’ Softball team is ranked 2nd in the latest NJCAA Division II Softball Poll, which was released earlier today.  The Bears-who extended their longest winning streak of the season to 15 games with doubleheader sweeps over Paradise Valley and Pima within the last four days-have now appeared in the NJCAA Top 3 in the last 14 consecutive NJCAA Polls-dating back to April 2012.  The Bears remain the only currently ranked ACCAC Division II Softball team, and are one of just three ACCAC Softball squads that are listed in any national poll (Arizona Western is 2nd and Eastern Arizona 8th in the NJCAA DI Poll).  The Bears will try to extend their streak this Saturday when they complete their current eight-game road swing in Coolidge against Central Arizona College in an ACCAC Softball doubleheader. 

The entire poll is listed below:
