Have added DH with BW Sunday.

But a lot of Pool C contenders ranked above them in RR

The first rankings were posted and it does not look like any surprises. Although, it has probably been a long while (if ever) that 3 out of the top 4 teams in the Regional Rankings were from the NCAC.  Not sure if they meant to put two teams at #5 or if that is a typo.

Mideast               
1.   Wooster      24-5      24-5
2.   La Roche      26-6      26-6
3.   DePauw      26-6      26-7
4.   Denison      23-8      23-8
5.   Adrian      23-8      24-8
5.   W & J      21-7      23-7
7.   Mt Union      25-7      25-7
8.   Otterbein      23-9      23-9
9.   Thomas More      22-7      22-7
10.   CWRU      21-14      21-14
11.   Marietta      16-12      16-12
12.   Kalamazoo      22-8      22-8
13.   Allegheny      20-12      20-12

CWR has a decent chance wit a couple more wins.  The bold teams are conference leaders and the four other teams above them might lose games and will still have the conference round that will hand out losses.  CWR could rise in the regional rankings because of this but the real competition is Emory with a Pool B bid.

Are there two B spots? Wash U seems like a lock for B

Mount and W&J split yesterday in PA.  That basically changes nothing in terms of the rankings.  Too bad for Mount.

Yes two Pool B bids.  It is safe to say they are both going to the UAA.

Would CWRU have to be considered a long shot at this point?

They need to root for favorites to win the conferences.  Any upsets just hurts their chances.  The best chance is to grab a pool B bid but if the committee drops pool B bids to one, that option goes away since Washington is the Pool B favorite.

Just saw that Adrian hitting the 30 win mark again this year runs their streak to 10 straight years of 30+ wins.  That's impressive consistency.  I will admit that I didn't realize the MIAA plays a 28 game regular season schedule.  That doesn't leave a ton of room for OOC games.  I think the WIAC does something similar maybe.

Adrian Shortstop Ryan Dorow won the MIAA player of the year for the 3rd time this year.  He is something to watch.
