FROM NCBWA RELEASE
NCBWA LogoDALLAS, Texas – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association continued its tradition of NCAA Division I polls for the 11th year with its 2009 weekly surveys. This season’s polls have been circulated from Feb. 23-June 25 following the NCAA World Series in Omaha, Neb. This is the final poll of the year and ’09 after LSU won its sixth NCAA baseball championship on June 24.

The poll voters come from 30 college baseball writers and related media persons from throughout the nation. The final poll has representation by 11 different conferences among the 302 baseball-playing schools in the 2009 NCAA Division I ranks, and five different schools have held down the No. 1 position. There have been 21 separate leagues among the Top 30 in ‘09 poll, and five different schools – (chronologically) North Carolina, LSU, Georgia, Arizona State, and UC Irvine – held down the No. 1 position in the NCBWA polls.
