The Lady Blazers started Wednesday at 29 and 2, with a sparkling 15-1 conference record to lead the Gulf South.

On the other hand, Lady Buffs are 23 and 4, having dropped two games in the past two weeks.

So, the Blazers reclaimed the number 1 spot in the National Fast-pitch Coaches Association Division II Softball rankings for the first time since March 6th, 2013.

The Blazers first defense of the spot came in a double header against the Lander Bearcats, in South Carolina.
