OSU Baseball: Cowboys in Top 10 Of Two Polls

Posted: Updated:

OSU fans will be happy to hear the Cowboys appeared in the top 10 in two preseason polls this last week, with a No. 7 ranking from Perfect Game and a No. 8 ranking in the D1Baseball.com rankings.

With its appearance in the preseason polls, which also includes a No. 25 ranking by Collegiate Baseball, OSU extends its streak of consecutive weeks in the national polls to 52 dating back to the 2013 season.

The Cowboys are coming off a 38-20 season in which they made a third-straight NCAA Regional appearance and hosted the tourney as a No. 1 seed for the second consecutive year. OSU also finished second in the Big 12 Conference standings with a 14-8 mark.

Entering its fourth season under head coach Josh Holliday, who is 127-57 in his first three seasons leading his alma mater, OSU returns seven starters from a year ago, including All-Big 12 performers Donnie Walton, Corey Hassel and Ryan Sluder.

On the mound, the Cowboys return a deep and experienced staff as nine pitchers are back from a group that recorded a 2.84 ERA, which ranked eighth in the NCAA and was the lowest by an OSU team since 1973.

OSU opens the season Feb. 19 at the UT Arlington Tournament in Arlington, Texas.
