When you start beating the ranked teams, you get ranked. After tossing 20th ranked Tulsa 2-0 in last weekends Cowgirl Classic, add wins over Virginia and your local McNeese Cowgirl Softball team finds itself nationally ranked for the first time ever.

As of today, the McNeese Cowgirls are No. 24 in Division I Top 25 Coaches Poll. The poll is a consortium of 32 NCAA Division I head coaches.

Congratulations to the McNeese Softball women, who host Louisiana Tech today at 5, before the team takes to the road again for more tournaments.
