LCSC drops three notches in NAIA National ranking

LEWISTON, ID - The LCSC Warriors baseball team has been ranked as high as fifth in the nation this season, but as the end of the regular season approaches, things look a little different.

Splitting a four-game series with the University of British Columbia this past weekend knocked the Warriors team down a few notches, three to be exact, from seventh to tenth in the national ranks. On a good note, Lewis-Clark State is in first place in the NAIA West region, with an overall record of 38-13 and 22-6 in conference play.

Some teams are just happy to be recognized, but as LC shortstop Bobby Joe Tannehill explains, the ranking is important for good reason.

"It is a big deal," said Tannehill. "People may not realize it but the higher seed you are you're going to get a better draw, you're going to get better games to play. Hopefully you get the night game and you know...if you got a hot day, you don't want to be a part of that."

This weekend the Warriors will play their last couple games of the season at the Inland Cellular Tournament at Harris Field.
