MSU Softball Up to #19; Faces #1 WT This Weekend

Midwestern State moved ahead three spots to No. 19 in the National Fast-pitch Coaches' Association Division II Poll released Wednesday afternoon.

The Mustangs have won their past nine games and 14 of the past 15 to improve to 19-4 on the season. MSU's most recent seven wins have come via the run-rule.

Midwestern State tops NCAA Division II with a .613 team slugging percentage and ranks second to Fairmont State (W. Va.) with a .405 team batting average.

The Mustangs are one of five teams from the South Central Region to receive mention in the poll joining No. 1 West Texas A&M, No. 10 Texas Woman's and No. 12 Colorado Mines while Abilene Christian is receiving votes.

Midwestern plays host to the top-ranked Lady Buffs (19-1) for a three-game series this weekend at Mustangs Park. The teams play a single game Friday night at 7 p.m. before battling in a twin bill on Saturday with the first pitch set for noon.
