TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa softball moved up in the national polls this week after posting a 4-1 record at the Texas Invitational last weekend.
The Golden Hurricane improved five spots to No. 19 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 Poll, and three spots to No. 21 in the USA Today/NFCA Division I Softball Poll. The ranking in each poll is Tulsa's highest ever. The Hurricane appeared at No. 24 in both polls last week.
