One day after Sara Nevins received her individual recognition, the USF softball team was rewarded for its accomplishments as a whole.
The Bulls, who are on a 13-game winning streak, jumped three spots from 21 to 18 in both the NFCA and USA Softball Collegiate polls.
USF is tied with the University of California for the second most victories in the nation with 33. Their 33-5 record is the best start to a season in school history.
The teams rise in the ranking was helped by its win over the University of Florida. The Bulls avenged an early season 3-2 home loss to the Gators in the extra innings of a road win that snapped Floridas 16-game winning streak at home.

Seniors Jared Thomas and David Aristil were awarded for their efforts.
