Army continues to receive votes in National Polls
DALLAS - For the seventh week in a row, the Army baseball team is among the country's top programs receiving votes in the national rankings.
The Black Knights, who improved to 37-12 following a doubleheader sweep of Bloomfield last Saturday, picked up votes in both the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' polls this week.
Army put on an offensive display over the weekend, outscoring Bloomfield 18-6 en route to the Black Knights' 13th doubleheader sweep of the season. Army won the opening game, 11-5, before taking a 7-1 decision in the nightcap.
The Black Knights are in the midst of one of the finest seasons in school history. The team has already set or tied 29 Academy and freshman records (both team and individual). Army is also closing in on a number of other school standards.
The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association continues its tradition of NCAA Division I polls for the 15th year with its 2012 weekly surveys. Florida State returned atop the survey for the fourth time this season and third week in a row. Florida held the No. 1 post eight times during the first 12 polls.
Army will return to action this weekend (May 12-13) when the top-seeded Black Knights host fourth-seeded Lafayette in the Patriot League Tournament semifinals. First pitch for Saturday's doubleheader is set for 12 p.m.
