WINTER PARK, Fla. (March 1, 2012) - After falling last week to 19th, the Tars (17-4) climbed one spot to 18th following a week where they went 5-1, including a split in a double header vs. top-ranked Alabama-Huntsville, the Association announced on Wednesday.

Despite its first two losses of the season, one to Rollins and another to Barry the following afternoon, Alabama-Huntsville topped the NFCA Division II Top 25 poll for the third straight week.

The Chargers (13-2) received nine of 16 first-place votes this week finished 10 points ahead of No. 2 North Georgia (19-3).  Angelo State (17-3) moved up five spots from eighth to third, while Valdosta State (11-2) jumped one spot to fourth.

Sonoma State (16-5) and Columbus State (17-7) both made their 2012 poll debuts at 23rd and 24th, respectively, while last week's No. 14 Saginaw Valley (4-4) and No. 23 Flagler (18-7) fell out of the rankings.

Rollins will be back in action Friday, Mar. 9th when they welcome Nova Southeastern to Winter Park to open conference play in game one of a three game series. Friday's game is set for 7 pm with a double header to follow on Saturday after noon at 1 pm. Fans can follow all the action live on the Tars Sports Network at RollinsSports.com.

The NFCA Division II Top 25 Poll is voted on by 16 NCAA Division II head coaches, two representing each of the eight NCAA regions. Current 2012 records are shown, first-place votes are in parentheses.
