LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Augustana, after six more victories last week, entered its third week at No. 1 in the NFCA DII Top 25 Coaches Poll. The Vikings (27-3), who earned 15 first-place votes, posted three doubleheader sweeps in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) play.

Outside of two ties being broken, the top 16 teams remained the same, while Angelo State returned to the poll at No. 23 and University of Charleston cracked the rankings at No. 25 for the first time in 2021.

The top 13 teams went a combined 50-3 and with two of those defeats coming in a doubleheader split between then-No. 3 (tie) North Georgia and No. 13 University of Alabama in Huntsville. No. 5 Indianapolis, which received one first-place vote, matched Augustana with six wins and ran its win streak to 24 games, the longest active streak in NCAA Division II.

No. 2 Valdosta State, No. 8 Rollins, No. 9 Young Harris, No. 10 Oklahoma Christian and No. 12 West Texas A&M each posted 4-0 weeks, while the 13th-ranked Chargers went 4-1. The second-ranked Blazers (29-3) and 10th-ranked Eagles (31-5) pushed their wins streaks to 18 and 14 games, respectively.

Also undefeated last week were 2-0 showings by No. 3 UT Tyler, No. 6 Texas A&M University-Commerce and No. 11 Concordia Irvine with No. 19 Auburn Montgomery sweeping Mississippi College on the road and No. 20 Winona State taking a pair of NSIC doubleheaders from Bemidji State and Minnesota Crookston.

Angelo State ran its win streak to 10 games with five wins last week, while Charleston went 5-1 and improved to 24-6 on the season.
