STARKVILLE, Miss. - The run at No. 1 continues for Tennessee (35-2, 11-2 SEC) as the Lady Vols hold down the nation's top position in the USA Today/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) rankings for the seventh consecutive week dating back to its initial appearance in the pole position on Feb. 14. UT swept a three-game Southeastern Conference series from Arkansas before taking both ends of a doubleheader from Liberty on Monday evening at Tyson Park to remain on top.

Texas A&M (28-3) climbed from third to second after a 3-0 week that included a triumph at Texas State and a pair of victories over Iowa State. The Aggies jumped the new No. 3 squad Alabama (31-3) after the Crimson Tide suffered a two games-to-one series loss at Baton Rouge, La., against SEC Western Division rival LSU. Oklahoma (36-3) remained at No. 4 while defending national champion Arizona (24-7) improved one position to No. 5.

LSU's (31-5) big weekend against UA was rewarded with a two-spot climb in the poll, while Florida (27-14) at No. 19 and Georgia at No. 22 round out the SEC schools currently in the top 25. UGA dropped four positions from 18th to 22nd after being swept over three games by the Gators in Gainesville, Fla., last weekend.

No. 1 Tennessee will continue its non-conference slate on Wednesday with a doubleheader against Western Kentucky beginning at 5 p.m. ET. Live stats will be available through utladyvols.com on Gametracker, and periodic updates will be provided to the Lady Vol Hotline at 865-974-8700 (box #6). The second match-up will be broadcast live on The Sports Animal (99.1, 99.3 FM, 990 AM, or on Yahoo Sports through the Lady Vol website) at approximately 7 p.m. ET.
