More than two weeks after they missed the Women's College World Series for the second-straight season, the Arizona Wildcats were voted No. 13 in the final ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 of the season.

The UA went 38-19 on the season, and moved up two spots from its No. 15 ranking at the end of the regular season.

Alabama, the national champion, received all 20 first-place votes. Oklahoma, which beat the UA in the super regionals and lost to the Crimson Tide in the best-of-three final round, was slotted second.

Cal placed third, Arizona State fourth and Oregon fifth. Conference-mates Washington (14), Stanford (20) and UCLA (21) also finished in the poll.
