Bears’ Softball rises to 2nd in latest NJCAA DII Regular Season Poll

April 02, 2014

Defending Region I Champs move up one spot to highest ranking of season

 

Colorado Springs, CO – April 2, 2014 -- Phoenix College is proud to announce that the Bears’ Softball team has moved up in the latest NJCAA Division II Softball Poll, which was released earlier today.  After spending the first two polls in the #3 spot, the Bears-who extended their longest winning streak of the season to 11 games with doubleheader sweeps over Glendale, Highline (WA) and South Mountain last week-moved up one spot to 2nd, which is the same ranking they owned in the final poll of the 2013 season.   It’s also the 9th time in the last 11 NJCAA Polls (extending back to April 2012) that they’ve been ranked 2nd or higher.  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 3rd and Eastern Arizona 9th in the NJCAA DI Poll).  The Bears will try to extend their streak this Saturday when they travel across town to face Paradise Valley Community College in an ACCAC Softball doubleheader. 

The entire poll is listed below:
