KANSAS CITY, Mo. - California Baptist earned all 22 first-place votes to hold strong as the top-ranked team in the second edition of the NAIA Softball Coaches' Top 25 Poll, the national office announced Tuesday. The Lancers recorded 622 points to land the No. 1 spot for the 10th consecutive poll. The top-five teams remain the same, but rearranged with Lubbock Christian (Texas) taking over at No. 2, followed by No. 3 Lee (Tenn.), No. 4 Point Loma Nazarene (Calif.) and No. 5 Bethel (Ind.). 

All 25 teams that were ranked a week ago carried over to the second poll of the 2010 season. Eight teams, including four among the top 10, held onto their previous rank, while the remaining 17 teams adjusted position. No team moved more than two spots up or down. Climbing two notches were Lee, No. 6 Concordia (Ore.) and No. 16 Savannah College of Art & Design (Ga.). Point Loma Nazarene, No. 8 Dickinson State (N.D.) and No. 25 Brenau (Ga.) each dropped back two spots.
