LOUISVILLE, Va. – The R-MC softball team moved up to #13 in the nation in the latest NFCA Poll this week. The Yellow Jackets are 13-1 on the season and move up to their highest rank in program history.

Last week, the Yellow Jackets played a double-header against #11 Christopher Newport in Ashland, winning both games. In game one, R-MC beat the Captains 4-2, followed by a 5-2 victory in game two.

The Yellow Jackets are now 3-0 against top 25 teams this season. R-MC beat #6 Manhattanville 4-2 at the Beach Blast in early March. The Yellow Jackets first received votes in the preseason poll before moving up to #17 the last two weeks.
