Tyler Junior College was the third-place choice, followed by Trinity Valley, who secured the remaining first-place vote.
Landers fill the void created when Johnny Estelle accepted an assistant coaching job at University of Houston in the spring.
Paris Junior College, Panola College and Bossier Parish Community College were chosen to finish five, six, and seven, respectively.
All of the league's coaches cast a ballot in the poll,with the exception of mentor's form Bossier Parish, Coastal bend and San Jacinto.
TVCC and Blinn top selections in women's poll
Returning two All-Americans off of last year's national championship squad, Trinity Valley was selected as the odds-on pick to win the whole ball of wax once again.
The Lady Cardinals received nine of the 10 first-place votes to finish ahead of Blinn and Tyler.
Angelina was picked fourth, one slot in front of San Jacinto, who received the league's other first-place vote.
San Jac is coached by former Lon Morris head coach Brenita Williams-Jackson.
Williams-Jackson has done well with her first recruiting class at San Jac, with her team considered to be a dark horse to really challenge some of the better teams in the circuit this year.
The Lady Jags were pegged to finish seventh, one spot behind Kilgore and in front of Panola, Paris and Bossier Parish, who is fielding a women's club for the first time this season.
The JC ladies have a brand-new head coach in Sam Houston State-product Leasa Ailshie, who previously served as the team'a assistant coach under then head coach Lynn Nabi. Nabi was promoted to academic dean at JC in the off season.
Ailshie has eight new players to work with this year, so the jury is still out on the Lady Jags at this point.
