OKLAHOMA CITY - Mizzou Softball has been ranked No. 17 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 preseason poll to start its 2014 campaign, it was announced Tuesday by USA Softball. The ranking marks the seventh-consecutive season the Tigers have earned a preseason top 25 ranking during head coach Ehren Earleywine's eight-season tenure at Mizzou.

Mizzou finished the season ranked No. 11 by both the ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 poll and the USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 poll.
