Salisbury posted a 2-2 week last week, with wins in Capital Athletic Conference play. The Sea Gulls defeated Wesley College 22-13 on Wednesday, before splitting a doubleheader with Frostburg State University on Saturday, picking up an 8-4 win in the second game.

In the D3baseball.com poll, the Sea Gulls earned 308 points for the 11th spot, and in the ABCA poll, the Gulls garnered 232 points for the No. 14 ranking.

Christopher Newport University was the only other CAC team to be in both polls, taking No. 14 in D3baseball.com and No. 17 in ABCA. Frostburg and University of Mary Washington also took spots in the D3baseball.com poll at Nos. 16 and 18, respectively.

Both polls had the same top-three teams with No. 1 Trinity (Texas) University, No. 2 State University of New York at Cortland, and No. 3 Birmingham-Southern College.
