PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Monday (April 28, 2003)

CAL. ST. FULLERTON NO. 1 IN COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER (www.baseballnews.com) POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. — Cal. St. Fullerton (38-8) has been ranked No. 1 in Collegiate Baseball newspaper's NCAA Division I baseball poll for the second straight week.

The Titans, which have won 10 in a row and 14 of their last 15 games, are 11-1 in Big West Conference games and have swept seven series this season, including a 3-game set over the past weekend against Cal Poly SLO. Cal. St. Fullerton surpassed its 2002 win total with its latest victory in a 4-3 win over the Mustangs.

Poll Notes: Two teams fell out of the top 30 this week in Arkansas (0-4 last week) and North Carolina (2-3). Two new teams in the poll are Lamar (31-12, winners of 12 of its last 15 games) and Alabama (31-13) which swept a 3-game series against Arkansas over the past weekend. One team has been red-hot lately in Arizona St. The Sun Devils have won four in a row as they outscored Washington St. 51-3 over a 3-game series. Besides scoring 21 runs and 25 runs in two of the three games, ASU pitching threw two shutouts. Two other interesting series over the past weekend saw Arizona take two of three at Stanford while Clemson swept a 3-game series at home against Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets, which lost to Georgia early last week, have now lost four straight games.

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