The Jaguar Softball team moved up in the weekly polls again this week after going a perfect 5-0 on the week including a 3-2 win over then #17 ranked Georgia.

The Jags moved up to #14 in the USA Today/NFCA poll and to #16 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll. They were previously ranked #19 in both polls last week.

They will travel to Thibodaux, Louisiana for a mid-week matchup this afternoon at 5pm. The Jags are currently riding a six game winning streak into the game with an 11-1 overall record on the season.

Their only loss came against Northwestern in the 2014 Tiger Classic in Baton Rouge which they rebounded from and defeated the host, #21 ranked LSU Tigers. They were originally scheduled to go to Athens, Georgia for the Bulldog Classic, but it was cancelled due to weather concerns.

Blair Johnson was named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week on Monday for her performance over the last week.

But the game against Nicholls State has lost of meaning as head coach Becky Clark would get her 400th win as a Jaguar if her team can prevail today.
