LOUISVILLE, Ky. – UT Tyler is once again the unanimous No. 1 team in the 2022 Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll. Fresh off a 4-0 weekend in Lone Star Conference (LSC) play, the Patriots (34-4) were voted unanimously on top for the fourth time this season and have been No. 1 in nine of the ten polls.

UT Tyler swept then-RV St. Mary’s and St. Edward’s in its final two LSC road doubleheaders of the season. The undefeated weekend was capped off by Kaylee Davis’ first career no-hitter, in a 1-0 victory over the Hilltoppers.

There was movement in the top five following Cal State San Marcos’ twinbill sweep of then No. 2 Concordia Irvine. In the top-10 matchup, the Cougars (33-3) edged the Eagles (38-5) 5-4 and 4-2 in Irvine. With those victories, CSU San Marcos jumped to No. 4, while CUI dipped to No. 7. 

No. 2 Rogers State and No. 3 Valdosta State each moved up one spot in this week’s rankings. The Hillcats (35-3) and Blazers (27-5) enjoyed undefeated weekends on the road in league play. RSU escaped Missouri Western with a 2-1 (10 inn.) & 3-1 wins and thumped Northwest Missouri State by a combined score of 25-1. VSU scored 32 runs in their three-game sweep of West Georgia.

Indianapolis (34-4) picked up six wins in Great Lakes Valley Conference play and stayed at No. 5. Riding a 13-game win streak, Auburn Montgomery elevated to No. 6. The Warhawks (30-6) ran by Union, outscoring the Wolves in a three-game Gulf South Conference sweep.

Texas A&M-Kingsville slipped one spot to No. 8 after splitting LSC doubleheader against No. 11 Angelo State and then-No. 15 Lubbock Christian. Tampa, who was idle last week, fell to No. 9, and Central Oklahoma remained No. 10. 

Earning a spot in the poll for the first time this season is No. 25 East Stroudsburg (26-4).
