FORT MYERS, Fla. – Following the Sunday afternoon loss to Ave Maria over the weekend, the FGCU baseball team slid three spots to No. 26 in the latest release of the Collegiate Baseball Top 30 poll, announced by the media outlet on Monday afternoon.

The Green and Blue were also ranked No. 30 according to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), and were listed among “others to watch” by Perfect Game for the third-straight week. After landing at No. 6 last week, the Eagles dropped to No. 11 in the latest edition of the College Baseball Daily Mid-Major Poll. Additionally, FGCU received six votes (T-36th) in the USA Today Top 25, while dropping out of the Baseball America Top 25 ranks.

Marking the final contest in the 11-game stand at Swanson Stadium, the Eagles are set to take on visiting FIU on Wednesday evening beginning at 6:30 p.m. It will also mark the final contest before the Green and Blue head to Johnson City, Tenn. to open Atlantic Sun Conference play against ETSU in a three-game set this weekend.
