Yavapai, LSU-Eunice Stay On Top In DI, DII NJCAA Polls, Corning Takes Over DIII
By Johnny Miller
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Only one of the three NJCAA polls saw a change at the top this week, with Yavapai and LSU-Eunice staying on top of the Division I and Division II poll, respectively, while Corning moving to No. 1 in Division III.
Yavapai (45-2) has been on the top of each of the four regular season poll this year and is currently riding a 28-game win streak.
LSU-Eunice kept their No. 1 ranking for the second straight week despite going 2-2 last week. The Bengals started the week by losing a pair of heartbreakers to then Division I No. 8 Blinn, but bounced back on the weekend with two Region XIII wins over Meridian.
After an 8-0 start Corning took over the top spot in the Division III poll from Brookdale who had held it in both previous polls this season. In their first eight games of the season, the Red Barrons are averaging 9.6 runs per game, while limiting opponents to just 3.25 runs.
