The Lady Bison softball team (26-21 overall, 15-4 A-Sun) set another school record with their ranking in the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) released by the NCAA Wednesday.

The weighted combination of win-loss record and strength of schedule gave the Lady Bisons a No. 104 ranking out of 282 teams in NCAA Division I. It is the highest any Lipscomb softball team in the NCAA era has been ranked.

A current 11-game winning streak is the longest for the Lady Bisons since they made the jump to NCAA Division I. Additionally nine straight conference wins for the Lady Bisons also sets a school record for longest conference winning streak.

The Lady Bisons take on A-Sun foe USC Upstate in a double header at 4 p.m. Saturday at Draper Diamond.
