LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Georgia College Softball team (36-14) rose one spot to No. 20 in the latest Division II National Poll, released by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Wednesday. The No. 20 slot matches the highest position for Bobcat Softball this season.

This marks four-straight weeks for Bobcat Softball in the nation's top-25. Georgia College is one of two Peach Belt Conference (PBC) schools in this week's list, and one of three from the NCAA Southeast Region.
