How many superlatives can we put on this season? We had two Top 5 teams battle it out…with the result a new #1 team in the country. But that wasn’t the only series out there. There were upsets everywhere this last week. And series that came down to the wire on who was going to take it all.
Several teams have also been knocking on the door and due to their play recently, we decide to let them in. In the regional rankings, Point Loma and North Alabama jump inside after impressive runs the last few weeks. Not to be left out, Southern Arkansas and Northwood both have had very good seasons so far.
In our Top 30, North Alabama swept previously ranked Lee to jump on in. Joining them is Point Loma, who we have been watching for weeks and are now a no-doubt Top 30 team.
There are a BUNCH of series coming up this week with teams in our Top 30 playing each other. Conference play has begun, so things are starting to get interesting. Some early upstarts have fallen back, while some teams we thought would be in the hunt…who stumbled at the start…have regained their footing and are grinding out wins towards their goal of making the NCAA tournament.
We expect more movement in our polls this week. Division 2 baseball is just too volatile this year…from top to bottom. Nothing will surprise us.
