Spartanburg, S.C. – Following a 4-0 week last week, the USC Upstate softball team remained in the Top 25 in the latest NCAA RPI released Monday evening, coming in at No.24 in the listing. In addition, the Spartans remain among the nation’s statistical leaders in the latest report issued by the NCAA.
Upstate is ranked No. 24 in the latest RPI, sliding down three spots from last week’s program-best No. 21 ranking. Upstate was No. 25 in the first ranking released by the NCAA two weeks ago.
