LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Undefeated Colorado Mesa continued as the No. 1 program in the NFCA Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll. The Mavericks (22-0) increased their hold on the top spot, gathering 12 first-place votes and 394 points.

CMU hit the road and swept a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference series from New Mexico Highlands. The Mavericks offense exploded for 56 runs, including 23-0 and 14-0 victories over the Cowgirls.

The next five spots remained the same. North Georgia had a light week, sweeping Lee in a non-conference doubleheader at home, while No. 3 Dixie State was idle as it packed for its PacWest Conference trip to Hawai’i. Both programs received two first-place votes.

No. 4 Angelo State enjoyed a 5-0 week, extending its winning streak to 23 games. The Rambelles (24-1) run-ruled RV Central Oklahoma twice in a home doubleheader and earned a Lone Star Conference sweep of Eastern New Mexico. The fifth-ranked Chico State Wildcats (23-2) went 5-1 in California Collegiate Athletic Association play. They split on the road with Stanislaus State and swept a four-game series from Cal State Monterey Bay.

No. 6 North Alabama continued to roll as it took care of Miles before taking all three Gulf South Conference contests from Shorter. The victories extended their winning streak to 18 games.

Central Region foes Winona State and Southern Arkansas flip-flopped the No. 7 and 8 spots. The Warriors (17-2) capped off their spring break trip in Florida with six wins, including a win over new-No. 23 Grand Valley State, to run their winning streak to 14 games. The Lady Muleriders (19-3) went 3-1 on the road in Great American Conference play, dropping the final game of a four-game set at Southern Nazarene.

Rounding out the top 10 in No. 9 Saint Leo and No. 10 Minnesota State, who also switch positions. The Lions (20-7) finished the week 7-1, while the Mavericks (16-3) went 5-1 at the Spring Games in Clermont, Fla., including a 5-1 triumph over then-No. 13 Southern Indiana.

Making their first appearance in the top-25 are No. 20 Southern New Hampshire (10-0), No. 23 Grand Valley State (13-5) and No. 25 California Baptist (16-3).
