HUNTSVILLE, TX -- For the first time in school history, the Sam Houston State baseball team is ranked in all four major college baseball polls, topping out at No. 22 in Collegiate Baseball.
The Bearkats have steadily been gaining votes, with the USA Today/Coaches poll adding SHSU this week at No. 25.
They have been ranked as high as No. 20 in the Collegiate Baseball poll, dropping two spots this week to No. 22. The Kats had no movement in the Baseball America poll, remaining at No. 24. SHSU debuted in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association poll two weeks ago at No. 29 and were 28th last week. This week's poll has not been released yet.
The Bearkats (28-11, 17-4) went 3-1 last week, winning at home against Houston and then taking two of three Southland Conference road games at McNeese State, sweeping a double header on Saturday.
They have not dropped a Southland Conference series this season and currently hold a four-game lead over both Southeastern Louisiana and Texas-Arlington with 12 games left to play in conference.
Sam Houston will be at home for four games this week, hosting Houston Baptist on Tuesday night, and then will welcome Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to Don Sanders Stadium for three games this weekend, starting on Friday.
