Bulldogs ranked No. 22 and 24 in the two major polls this week

Fresno State is ranked in the nation's Top 25 for a fourth straight week.  The Bulldogs are No. 22 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Top 25 poll, and No. 24 in the USA Today/NFCA coaches Top 25 poll, both of which were released earlier today.

This is the first time since the 2009 season that the Bulldogs find themselves ranked for four consecutive weeks in both polls during the regular season.

Fresno State leads the Mountain West with nine victories over teams from Power 5 Conferences this season.  In addition, the Bulldogs are ranked as having the nation's 10th toughest schedule of the 294 teams that participate in NCAA Division I softball, according to the latest NCAA stats.
