For the first time since April 6, 2014, the USF softball team has cracked the top 25.
USF had been hanging on the fringe for a few weeks, but following a 5-0 week, which included a sweep of East Carolina, the Bulls come in at No. 23 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Top 25 and No. 24 in the USA Today/NFCA Coaches Poll.
The Bulls (29-9, 3-0) are currently riding a program-record 21-game winning streak, which is tied with FSU for the longest active streak in division I softball. They were also 22-1 in the month of March.
During the streak, the Bulls have posted seven shutouts as well as nine run-rule victories.
USF is one of five ranked teams to have 29 or more wins and is the lone AAC team to crack the top 25.
The Bulls’ highest ranking came in 2012 when they finished the regular season at No. 16 before making the program’s first appearance in the College Softball World Series.
USF currently rank 14th in batting average (.339) and 13th in slugging percentage (.547).
