Virginia State Continues Receiving Votes in Latest NCBWA Top 10 Atlantic Region Poll

Virginia State baseball is receiving votes in the latest edition of the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Top 10 Atlantic Region Poll as released on Wednesday March 22.

This is just the second time the Trojans have received votes in the Division II era of the program, following the March 1, 2023, edition of the poll.

The Trojans are 12-8 on the season and most recently swept a three-game series over Claflin University last weekend. Three VSU pitching duels marked the first three games of the series before the bats from both sides found life.
