OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - For the second-straight season, Lipscomb earned votes in the ESPN/USA Softball Collegiate Top-25 Preseason Poll after finishing as runner-up in the Atlantic Sun last year. The Lady Bison capped the 2011 season with a 30-20 record with a 15-5 conference mark and advanced to the Atlantic Sun Championship Final.
LU received two points in the rankings and tied for the equivalent of 37th in the poll with Florida State, Louisville and Northwestern.
Lipscomb returns the 2010 A-Sun Pitcher of the Year, Whitney Kiihnl, who has landed on the A-Sun All-Conference team all three years of her career. Also coming back into the fold from last year's squad are 2011 All-Conference members Caroline Mason and All-Freshman selection Haley Elliot.
The Lady Bison open the 2012 season at the Mardi Gras Tournament in Mobile, Ala. on Feb. 10-12th.
