NKU BASEBALL BACK IN NATIONAL POLL - March 29, 2006
Norse ranked 30th nationally in Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Division II poll
 

NKU has won 13 of its past 14 games

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - The Northern Kentucky University baseball team is ranked 30th nationally in this week’s Collegiate Baseball Newspaper’s NCAA Division II poll.

NKU is 18-9-1 overall, 16-5-1 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. The Norse gained sole possession of first place in the GLVC Tuesday after sweeping a doubleheader at Southern Indiana.

NKU jumped into the national poll at No. 24 earlier this season after posting wins against Grand Valley State and Wisconsin-Parkside in February. The Norse dropped out of the rankings early in March with a 5-8-1 record, but NKU has since won 13 of its last 14 games to move back into the national poll.

Other North Central Region teams in the national poll are Ashland (10th), Grand Valley State (16th) and Quincy (27th). Grand Valley State is seeking its fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Division II World Series this season, and NKU will meet the Lakers in another doubleheader April 15 at Allendale, Mich.

NKU begins a four-game series against Rockhurst at noon Saturday at Kansas City, Mo. The teams will conclude that series Sunday with a noon doubleheader.
