FLORENCE, Ala. – The University of North Alabama baseball team is the No. 1 team in the NCAA Division II in the latest poll released Tuesday by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. It is the first No. 1 national ranking for a UNA baseball team in the program's history.

 

 

 

The Lions, 23-7, are ranked No. 2 nationally by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and No. 3 in the nation in the College Baseball Lineup.
