NMSU Softball Earns National Ranking

NMSU Softball Earns National Ranking

One year after achieving a top 40 national ranking for team grade point average, the NM State softball squad improved its standing to No. 21 in the country when the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) announced its 2011 All-Academic Teams and Scholar Athletes late last week.


NM State rated No. 21 among Division I squads in the country with a team GPA of 3.370. Only 133 of the 289 schools that sponsor softball made the cut, meaning the Aggies' ranking was well within the top-10 percent of NCAA DI programs.


Last season, the Aggies stood No. 40 nationally with a 3.305 GPA. NM State also posted a record-breaking year in 2011 with a school record 44 wins last season. The Aggies won their NCAA tournament debut after clinching their first conference regular season and tournament titles last spring.


"I am very proud of the hard work our student-athletes put into being both students and athletes in 2010-11," said head coach Kathy Rodolph. "Last year was proof you can excel in both arenas."


For the second straight season, the Aggies were the top-rated program in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) and were one of only 24 programs with a GPA of 3.35 or higher. Tennessee Tech led Division I with a team GPA of 3.619.


Additionally, eight Aggies on the 2011 team earned NFCA Scholar Athlete honors by achieving a GPA of 3.50 or above. Three of those honorees return for the 2012 season.
