WITH THE CONCLUSION OF THE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES ON TUESDAY, AND THE RELEASE OF SEVERAL FINAL NATIONAL POLLS ON WEDNESDAY, SHSU’S HISTORIC RUN TO THE NCAA SUPER REGIONALS DID NOT GO UNNOTICED. THE BEARKATS LOCKED IN RANKING IN 4 NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED POLLS ON WEDNESDAY, WITH A COUPLE OF ORGANIZATIONS – PERFECT GAME & THE USA TODAY COACHES POLL – YET TO RELEASE THEIR FINAL MARKS. SAM HOUSTON FINISHED THE SEASON RANKED NO. 14 NATIONALLY IN THE POLL RELEASED BY THE COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER PUBLICATION, NO. 16 BY THE NATIONAL COLLEGIATE BASEBALL WRITERS ASSOCIATION, NO. 18 BY D1BASEBALL.COM, AND NO. 20 IN THE POLL FROM BASEBALL AMERICA.
