Georgia softball rises in latest power rankings

The Georgia Bulldogs softball team has risen to No. 3 in the latest edition of the NCAA’s softball power rankings. Georgia went 4-0 over the past week, sweeping Ole Miss in a three-game series on the road and defeating Georgia Southern 17-1.

Georgia is now 27-4 on the season with wins over seven different ranked opponents. The Dawgs are ranked behind only Oklahoma and Texas in the power rankings. Georgia is 5-1 in SEC action.

Michella Chester explained why she bumped Georgia up to the No. 3 softball team in her top-10 power rankings.

No. 3 was a tough choice between a mix of Stanford, Georgia and Duke, all sitting around the same spot. I ended up giving it to the Dawgs, who had an impressive sweep over a strong Ole Miss team on the road.

Georgia softball’s next game is at Kennesaw State on March 27 at 6:30 p.m. ET. After that, Georgia hosts Arkansas in a three-game SEC series from Saturday to Monday.
