KANSAS CITY, Mo--- The final NAIA Softball top-25 poll has been released and Southern Oregon (45-3) is still the No. 1 team in the nation. The final ranking solidifies SOU as the top-ranked team for the entire season. 

Oregon Tech (38-8), on the other hand, saw an 11-spot drop as the Cascade Conference Schedule concluded. 

Tech was ranked at No. 6 in the previous poll and plummeted to No. 17 in the final poll. The College of Idaho, which split a weekend series with OIT last weekend, saw an 8-team jump at the same time (from 23 to 15). 

At first glance, it seems rather unfair for one team to fall 11 spots and another to jump eight spots after splitting a series with each other. Oregon Tech head coach Greg Stewart cleared the air on how the shake-up in rankings happened. 

“With the conclusion of the Cascade Conference regular season, College of Idaho finished one game ahead of Oregon Tech in second place," said Stewart. "Therefore, we submit our conference top-25 poll in the order of our final CCC standings to confirm the strength of our conference schedule and what was determined on the field.”

A rematch between Oregon Tech and College of Idaho is in the cards for the Cascade Collegiate Tournament, which starts on Friday. 

The winner of Tech and Warner Pacific will play the College of Idaho. Oregon Tech and Warner Pacific will play at 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

Southern Oregon will sit the opening games out and host the tournament. The Raiders will host the winner of Eastern Oregon and Corban at 2 p.m. on Friday
