Tuesday, March 24, 2009

FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Florida Gulf Coast University softball team is ranked 20th in the nation in the latest Ultimate College Softball poll. The poll was released early Tuesday morning (Mar. 24).

The Eagles (33-5) have moved down two spots in the poll after being ranked 18th in last week’s poll, which was the program’s second-ever Division I ranking. The FGCU softball team had its 24-game winning streak snapped in the first game of a doubleheader split against UNF at the UNF Softball Complex last weekend. The Eagles have now won 25 of their last 26 games.

The Eagles, one of the A-Sun’s tri-champs last season, continue Atlantic Sun play this weekend when they host the Spartans of USC Upstate (Thursday, March 26) and the Lady Bucs of ETSU (Saturday, March 28).
