The University of North Georgia softball team jumped up three spots to No. 6 in the most recent National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Top-25 Poll after sweeping the last seven games.
Melissa Dickie and Kim McMillan led the team last week and earned weekly recognition from the PBC office. Dickie, who went 3-0 with a shutout and a 0.35 earned run average in 20 innings of work last week, was named the conference’s Pitcher of the Week. McMillan was named the PBC Player of the Week after batting .562 with four doubles, a home run and at least one hit in all six games last week.
West Texas A&M University (21-2) held on to the top spot in the poll after surpassing Valdosta State University (23-6) last week. Indianapolis (20-2), Valdosta State, Armstrong Atlantic and Southeastern Oklahoma State (25-6) rounded out the rest of the top-five.
The Saints (25-6, 5-1 PBC) visit Georgia College and State University at 5 p.m. today in Milledgeville.
