College Baseball Poll - Collegiate Baseball Newspaper

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Monday (May 8, 2000)

SOUTH CAROLINA NO. 1 IN COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER (www.baseballnews.com) POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. — South Carolina (46-6) has been ranked No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball newspaper NCAA Division I baseball poll for the fourth consecutive week. The Gamecocks remained at No. 1 despite losing two of three at Arkansas over the past weekend. In an unusual development, every team except one in the top 10 from last week which played games, lost at least one contest. Despite those two losses, South Carolina has still won 21 of its last 23 games.

POLL NOTES: Only one team fell out of the poll this week in Penn State. The Lions were 1-2 in the last rating period. Red-hot teams in the poll this week include Houston (6 straight wins), North Carolina (6 consecutive victories), San Jose St. (7 wins in a row) and Minnesota (14 victories in last 16 tilts).

The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll is the oldest college baseball poll. Its birth took place during the 1957 college baseball season.
