LOUISVILLE, Ky. – UT Tyler continued its hold on the No. 1 spot in this week’s 2022 Division II Top 25 Coaches Poll. The Patriots (38-4) posted a 4-0 mark last week, which included a pair of key Lone Star Conference victories over No. 15 Oklahoma Christian. 

Entering its 11th week at No. 1, UT Tyler’s undefeated LSC weekend gave the Patriots a two-game lead in the league standings, heading into the final week of regular-season play. Riding an 11-game win streak, UT Tyler wraps up LSC play on Saturday, April 26 at home against No. 20 Texas A&M University-Commerce.

With Auburn-Montgomery dropping to No. 5 after suffering a loss to Christian Brothers, Indianapolis elevated to No. 2 and Texas A&M-Kingsville to No. 3 with Central Oklahoma remaining at No. 4 for the second straight week. All three programs reached the 40-win plateau over the weekend.

The Greyhounds (41-5) swept Missouri S&T and Drury in Great Lakes Valley action and head into the last week of league play a game behind t-No. 16 Southern Indiana (36-10). The Javelinas (41-8) picked up four LSC wins, while the Bronchos (41-7) posted a 3-1 mark in MIAA action.

Rogers State (39-7) moved up two spots after a sweep of Harding and a split with Emporia State. Angelo State also captured four triumphs in LSC play and moved into the seventh spot. Following a four-game CCAA split with Cal State Monterey Bay, Cal State San Marcos (36-8) dipped to No. 8.

Tampa moved back into the top-10 at No. 9 and Valdosta State (29-9), which was topped by then-No. 20 West Florida (28-12) twice, fell to No. 10.

Returning to the top-25 at No. 24 is Chico State (34-11) and No. 25 Adelphi (33-11) makes its first appearance in the 2022 rankings.
