KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Lindsey Wilson College stayed at No. 12 in the latest NAIA Women's Tennis Coaches' Top-25 Poll, released Tuesday by NAIA officials.

The Blue Raiders remained at No. 12 for the third straight rating period dating back to March 20.

Lindsey Wilson (13-3) received 227 voting points from the national raters following its perfect 2-0 week last week. The Blue Raiders have won three straight and 12 of their last 13. The lone loss was at No. 1-ranked Auburn University Montgomery (Ala.) on April 3.

Lindsey Wilson is the top-ranked Mid-South Conference team.

Campbellsville University (11-5) is No. 19 and Georgetown College is outside the Top-25 but receives votes in the poll.

Auburn University Montgomery (Ala.) remains atop the national poll with 343 voting points and all 13 first-place votes. Fresno Pacific (Calif.) University is No. 2 with 332 voting points and Embry-Riddle (Fla.) University is No. 3 with 321 voting points.

The poll is voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each conference, the independents and unaffiliated groups. The next poll is scheduled to be announced on Tuesday, May 1.

Lindsey Wilson -- who finished the Mid-South Conference with a 6-0 regular season record -- earned the opening round bye as the tournament's top seed in next weekend's conference tournament in Lexington, Ky.

The Blue Raiders face the winner of fourth-seeded University of the Cumberlands (Ky.) and fifth-seeded UVa.-Wise on Friday, April 20 at the University of Kentucky Boone Tennis Center
