Bobcat Baseball in Region and National Rankings

>>>NCAA.COM RANKING CENTRAL

INDIANAPOLIS – The Georgia College baseball team (29-19) has earned prominent spots in both of the most recent NCAA Southeast Region Rankings and the Collegiate Baseball National Top-30.

Georgia College is No. 8 in the Southeast Region, the poll used to determine the three at-large choices to the NCAA Regional Tournament later this month. Mount Olive College owns the top spot, followed by Tusculum College. Armstrong is the first Peach Belt Conference (PBC) school listed at No. 3, with another, Francis Marion University at fourth. USC Aiken is fifth, with Catawba College and then Lander University in front of GC.

In the Collegiate Baseball National Top-30, GC took No. 28, after bursting back into the poll at No. 25 a week ago. The University of Tampa regains the top spot, with Tusculum second. GC is ranked fourth of the five PBC schools listed in this ranking, led by No. 6 Francis Marion.

The Bobcats begin their quest for the school’s first PBC Tournament title Wednesday, May 9 at 4 p.m., traveling to Columbus, Ga. to take on Lander.
