Incarnate Word and Abilene Christian switch places and Tarleton and Cameron flip flop as well.  Tarleton has a two game edge over Cameron, but will travel to Lawton to face the Aggies.  Abilene Christian has a one game edge over Cameron, but has to travel to #1 Angelo State.  The playoffs have started for TSU, ACU and CU.

  1. ASU - 68.94 - went 4-0 last week, 1-0 vs. ACU, 3-0 vs. TAMK.  #1 Regional ranking as of 4/18
  2. WTAM - 62.11 - went 2-2 last week, 1-0 vs. ENMU, 1-2 vs. TWU.  #8 Regional ranking.
  3. TWU - 61.04 - went 3-1 last week, 1-0 vs. TSU, 2-1 vs. WTAM.  #6 Regional ranking.
  4. ACU - 60.40 - went 1-3 last week, 0-1 vs. ASU, 1-2 vs. MSU.  #5 Regional ranking.
  5. TSU - 57.04 - went 2-2 last week, 0-1 vs. TWU, 2-1 vs. UIW. #9 Regional ranking
  6. UIW - 53.86 - went 2-3 last week, 1-1 vs. St. Marys, 1-2 vs. TSU.
  7. MSU - 52.63 - went 2-4 last week, 0-1 vs. CU, 0-2 vs. UCO, 2-1 vs. ACU.
  8. CU - 46.81 - went 2-2 last week, 1-0 vs. MSU, 1-2 vs. ENMU.
  9. TAMK - 44.36 - went 0-5 last week, 0-2 vs. UIW, 0-3 vs. ASU. Season Over
  10. ENMU - 41.40 - went 2-2 last week, 0-1 vs. WTAM, 2-1 vs. CU. Season Over
Switching places are TWU and ACU, UIW and MSU, and CU and TAMK.  The regional rankings above are now updated.  The LSC tournament is important on its own, but even more so for several teams.  Angelo State needs a strong performance to maintain is regional top seed (and hosting postseason games), while no one else is assured of a regional berth, especially if they fall out of the LSC tourney early.  The final spot is vulnerable as St. Mary's is currently #10 and the Heartland receives an automatic bid.

The junior transfer from Southern Mississippi was 11-for-17 at the dish with two doubles and two home runs while driving in eight runs. The Plano native kicked off her week with a 4-for-4 effort with a homer, a double and three RBIs in Game 1 Wednesday at Central Oklahoma then added a second bomb in Game 2.
