Press Release MSSU:


Fresh off a four-game sweep of Fort Hays State and a split with then No. 21 Arkansas-Fort Smith, the Missouri Southern baseball program has moved into the national poll as the coaches association and the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper reported today. 


The Lions are off to a 15-1 start and are atop the MIAA with a perfect 8-0 record. They are ranked No. 22 in the national poll this week, the first week Southern has been in the poll this year. 

This is the second year in a row the Lions have been nationally ranked as Southern moved into the college baseball writer's poll last year after starting the season 12-0. 

The Lions are the second-highest ranking MIAA program in the poll with Washburn coming in at No. 19 this week. They are the fourth-highest ranked team in the region following Minnesota State (No. 3), Washburn (No. 19) and St. Cloud State (No. 21). 

Southern will be in action tomorrow afternoon when the Lions play host to College of the Ozarks at 2 pm in a single, nine-inning game. They will then host Pittsburg State in a double-header on Wednesday at 1 pm and will face off with Central Missouri this weekend in a four-game MIAA series.
