The Tigers picked up a pair of wins last weekend over No. 7 Cal Lutheran and now sit in a tie for third behind La Verne and Chapman in the conference standings.

"It's nice being recognized for the work we've done so far this year. We play in a very competitive conference and every weekend matters," Oxy head coach Luke Wetmore said. "We've been in this position before where we were ranked as high as No. 2 or No. 3, but got ahead of ourselves. We will stay focused on what's in front of us right now and the opportunities we have every day."

Oxy is back in action against Redlands this weekend with its final three-game regular-season series before the SCIAC Postseason Tournament the following weekend.
