The University of North Georgia softball team stayed at No. 6 in this week’s National Fastpitch Coaches Association Top 25 Poll, announced Wednesday.

The Saints (30-7, 10-2 PBC) lost to Georgia College in the opener of the Peach Belt Conference doubleheader with the Bobcats 5-4, but then reeled off five straight wins starting with a 4-0 victory over the Bobcats. They proceeded to sweep Francis Marion University and the University North Carolina-Pembroke to end the road trip.

Courtney Poole, who went 3-0 with just three runs allowed, was named the conference’s Pitcher of the Week and Kim McMillan was named the PBC Player of the Week for the second week in a row after batting .533 with an .800 slugging percentage through the Francis Marion doubleheader.

North Georgia will play host to No. 4 Armstrong Atlantic in a doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday in Dahlonega.
