GALESBURG—The Carl Sandburg College softball team came in tied for 20th in the latest NJCAA Division II rankings, which were released Wednesday. It’s the first time the Chargers (24-16, 10-4) have received votes in the poll this season. Sandburg tied East Central (Mo.) for the final spot in the top 20.
The Chargers’ appearance in the poll comes on the heels of Sunday’s doubleheader sweep at Illinois Valley, which featured a pair of extra-inning victories and moved them into sole possession of first place in the Arrowhead Conference.
Sandburg has won seven in a row, 14 of its last 15 and is 17-3 in April. The Chargers, who host Black Hawk this afternoon, have won their last eight Arrowhead games.
