Maryland Baseball Finally Ranked


After a sweep of then eleventh-ranked NC State this weekend, Maryland baseball is ranked for the first time this season, coming in at 25th in the nation, by Collegiate Baseball News.

Maryland has played tough competition this year, and the two wins against Florida State and UNC proved that the team was just getting started.

Behind superb pitching and consistent hitting, the Terps had their best weekend of the season, outscoring the Wolfpack 22-6 in three games. It was an all-around effort, but the hitting of Anthony
Papio, Blake  Schmitt and Kyle Convissar lead the offense to their best offensive showing yet.

With the sweep, Maryland is third in the ACC standings behind Florida State and Clemson, who are third and 28thin the CBN rankings. Maryland does have a favorable schedule for the rest of the season, but do host Clemson in a three-game series this weekend. That will be there only potential games against a ranked opponent for the remainder of the season.

Despite the improved play and recent success, Maryland has no time to celebrate the victory as the team has a quick turnaround when they continue their home stand against George Mason on Wednesday.
