Pack Softball Receives Votes in ESPN.com/USA Softball Top-25 Poll
March 18, 2014
RALEIGH, N.C. – For the first time this season, the NC State softball team received votes for the ESPN.com/USA Softball top-25 poll released on Tuesday. The Wolfpack garnered eight votes in the poll.
After facing No. 10 Florida State last weekend, the Pack collected eight votes in the poll to finish just four spots shy of the top 25 at No. 29. LSU received the most votes among teams outside of the top 25 with 20, while Northwestern and Lipscomb gathered 16 and 10 votes, respectively.
It marked the second consecutive week that the Wolfpack has received votes in a top-25 poll, as the squad garnered two votes in last week’s National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) poll.
The squad will return to action on Wednesday, March 19 when it hosts the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a conference doubleheader. The first game is slated for 3 p.m. with the second game to follow.
