STARKVILLE, Miss. – Augustana closed out the 2012 season No. 5 in the final National Fastpitch Coaches Association Top 25 poll, the Association released Wednesday.

VSU (58-5) earned all 16 first-place votes to take the No. 1 spot. National semi-finalist Central Oklahoma (46-8) finished the voting in second, while national runner-up UC San Diego (45-23) and the other national semi-finalist Kutztown (52-7) ended the season tied for third. 

Conference-opponents Minnesota State (49-10) and Winona State (44-12) also received spots in the final poll of the season. The Mavericks checked in at No. 13 and the Warriors were No. 19.
