LOUISVILLE, Ky. – West Texas A&M remained the unanimous No. 1 program and Wingate moved into the top 10 in this week’s 2024 NFCA Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll.

The Lady Buffs (35-4) took two-of-three from Lubbock Christian in Lone Star Conference action and entered the week winners of 10 of their last 11.

There was no movement below WT until then-No. 9 Grand Valley dropped two more contests last week and fell to No. 14. With that, the next five programs, including new-No. 10 Wingate, moved up one spot apiece. The Bulldogs (37-6), who entered the week with the longest active winning streak of 17 games, did not allow a run in a pair of South Atlantic Conference sweeps of Limestone and Emory & Henry.

With a four-game Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) sweep of Simon Fraser, No. 11 Western Washington (30-4) extended its winning streak to 13 games, matching the program record set earlier this season, along with being the fastest Viking team to reach 30 wins in a season.

The next change in the rankings came at the No. 18 and 19 spots where Northwest Nazarene (30-7) and Lenoir-Rhyne (34-10) flip-flopped. The Nighthawks ran their win streak to eight games with a GNAC road sweep of Montana State-Billings, while the Bears went 3-1, dropping their lone contest to Anderson, 7-6.

The only other movement was No. 23 Washburn and No. 24 Cal State San Marcos traded places as well. The Ichabods (34-10) have won 11 straight following MIAA road sweeps of Nebraska Kearney and Fort Hays State, while the Cougars (23-14) took three-of-four from Cal State Monterey Bay CCAA action.

The 2024 NFCA Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll is voted on by the NFCA Division II Top 25 Poll Committee. The committee consists of 16 NCAA Division II head coaches with two representing each of the NCAA’s eight regions. Results are through Sunday, April 7.
