Texan Softball back to No. 21 in NFCA National Poll, will make home debut Friday against No. 2 UT Tyler


STEPHENVILLE – Tarleton moved up two spots in the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) National Poll to No. 21, where they started the season. The Texans have started the conference schedule 4-0 after road sweeps of UT Permian Basin and Western New Mexico.

Tarleton was ranked No. 21 in NFCA preseason poll and has defeated previously-ranked No. 1 Augustana (S.D.) on their way to an 17-4 start this year. The Texans have now been ranked in 11 consecutive NFCA polls dating back to April 3, 2019, including last year’s final and this year’s preseason rankings.

This is also the 32nd week in program history that Tarleton has received national recognition in the NFCA poll.

The Lone Star Conference remains one of the elite conferences represented in the national poll. Newcomer UT Tyler (16-0) leads the conference ranked at No. 2 while Angelo State (9), Texas A&M-Commerce (14), Oklahoma Christian (18) and Lubbock Christian (20) join Tarleton in the poll to give the LSC six teams among the top 25.

After rain postponed Tarleton’s doubleheader against Midwestern State today, the Texans will now make their home debut Friday in a showdown with the No. 2 team in the country, UT Tyler. The Texans and Patriots are set to take the field at 4 p.m. Friday in Stephenville.
