Northern Sun D2 College Baseball Poll – 3/10/10

Northern Sun D2 Poll1

The Northern Sun Division 2 College Baseball Poll is back for its 2nd year.  Each week, the Northern Sun Baseball Blog combines the 3 primary Division 2 College Baseball Poll’s into 1 composite ranking of the Top 30 teams.

For the 2nd week in a row Florida Southern was the unanimous #1 team in NCAA Division 2 College Baseball as they swept the top spot in all 3 D2 polls.  As is typical early in the season, we did see some significant movement in the rankings as Francis Marion dropped all the way from #3 to #12, Delta State dropped 7 spots to a tie for #17 and Catawba dropped from #15 all the way out of the Top 30.

On the other hand, we saw big moves upward by Columbus State who moved up from #12 to #6, UNC – Pembroke who broke into the Top 30 to a tie for #17 and Incarnate Word (#25) who last week wasn’t ranked by any of the 3 polls and this week made the Top 30 in all 3 with big wins over previous Top 30 team, Texas – Permian Basin.

One trend that continues this year is that the College Baseball News poll continues to track the most closely to the Northern Sun Poll.  CBN has only 1 of their Top 30 not make the Northern Sun Top 30.  Last year it seemed like PING! was the most divergent and they certainly have some differences this week from the other 2 (Mount Olive, Columbus State, Franklin Pierce) but it seems like the Baseball Writers poll has the most differences with choices like New Mexico Highlands (#10), Francis Marion at #20 and Cal State Bernardino at #12 when they don’t even make the other 2 polls at all.

Northern Sun Conference team, Minnesota State, is now in the Top 30 in 2 of the national polls and is tied for #28 in the Northern Sun D2 Poll.  Winona State also made the Top 30 in 2 polls but didn’t get enough total points to crack the Top 30 in the composite poll.
