INDIANAPOLIS – For the second time in as many iterations, Penn State Harrisburg has been included in the NCAA's Division III baseball regional rankings.
The Lions (28-10-1) remain fifth in the Mid-Atlantic region after debuting in the same spot a week ago. The team has come on particularly strong to end the year, winning 11 of the its last 13 games. Bret Williams, Travis Van Houten and Miguel Torres currently rank among the nation's best in statistical categories including hits, runs, RBIs and total bases. As a team, the Blue & White rank top-10 in the country in hits, runs and home runs.
Nationally-ranked Rowan claimed the top spot in the regional rankings, while The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and Johns Hopkins round out the top three. The Lions have earned wins over three regionally-ranked teams so far this spring, having defeated Hopkins, Alvernia and Christopher Newport.
Penn State Harrisburg returns to action this weekend when the team takes part in the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Tournament. The Lions, the tourney's No. 4 seed, open against No. 6 Southern Virginia at Salisbury on Friday morning, May 3.
