NJCAA Polls: Softball Moves Up to #3, Baseball Holds #4 Ranking

In the latest NJCAA Division III Polls, the Cumberland Baseball team stayed at the #4 spot and the Softball Program climbed one spot from last week to #3. This is the highest ranking held by the Dukes Softball Program after cracking the rankings for the first time in history earlier this season. 

The Lady Dukes made their debut in the polls at #5 back on April 1st.  The team held that spot before making the the jump to #4 on April 15th and finally moved up to #3 this week.  With the regular season in the books, the Dukes will enter the Region 19 Tournament with an overall record of 32-7 and the #1 overall seed.  The tournament bracket and schedule will be released on Monday April 27th.

The Baseball Program has held the #4 spot in the DIII Baseball Polls since the April 1st poll was released.  Cumberland began the season as the seventh ranked team in the nation, fell to number nine in the March 18th poll before moving all the way up to #4.  The Dukes currently hold a 28-6 record, but still have a meaningful stretch left this weekend including seven games against conference opponents Camden, Ocean, and Union.
