The Kentucky Softball Coaches Association released its latest poll on Monday night. McCracken County claimed the top spot for the 28th straight week, a streak dating back to 2014.

The Mustangs held on to the number-one spot despite suffering their second loss of the season to Madisonville, ranked second in the latest poll, over the weekend. Madisonville has lost three times: to Apollo, Owensboro Catholic and Warren East.

Scott County, whose only two losses are to McCracken County, is ranked third. Bullitt East and Woodford County round out the top five.

No Lexington teams were ranked in the latest poll. Lafayette (17-8-2) received votes.

East Carter, the state’s last remaining undefeated team at 28-0, is ranked 13th.
