After a one-week absence, Appalachian State University baseball has reentered college baseball’s national rankings at No. 30 in this week’s National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) poll.
Two weeks ago, Appalachian garnered only the second national ranking in program history when it came in at No. 29 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll. At the time, the ranking was believed to be a first at ASU but it was later confirmed that the Mountaineers were also ranked No. 29 in the final Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll of the 1984 regular season.
After falling out of college baseball’s major polls last Monday, the Mountaineers rebounded with a 4-0 week to earn their first-ever inclusion in the 15-year history of the NCBWA’s national rankings.
