Fort Hays State Softball received seven votes in the latest National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) poll, down two votes from last week’s release.  The rankings, released Wednesday (April 2), have FHSU slated as one of three MIAA teams earning national recognition.

The Tigers have been ranked as high as 13th nationally this season, and are joined in this week’s poll by MIAA opponents Emporia State, which remained in the Top 10 at No. 7, and Central Oklahoma, which received 18 votes.

FHSU hits the road this weekend for conference doubleheaders with Missouri Western on Friday (April 4) in St. Joseph, Mo., and Northwest Missouri State on Saturday (April 5) in Marysville, Mo.
