The Seton Hill University baseball team has been ranked No. 27 in the Collegiate Baseball News preseason poll.

The Griffins, who have made three consecutive NCAA Division II tournament regional appearances, are coming off a 46-11 season (30-4 West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) and have won the past three West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference North Division titles.

Defending national champion West Chester enters the season as the top-ranked team in the poll.

Seton Hill opens the 2013 season with a three-game series Feb. 16 at No. 7 Francis Marion.

Track honors

Seton Hill seniors Calsie Boyd and Aron Kurzinski were among those to earn the first weekly track and field honors in the WVIAC.

Boyd was named female field athlete of the week, and Kurzinski earned male field athlete of the week.

At the Tiffin University Open, Boyd won the high jump with a distance of 5 feet, 6 inches and the triple jump with a 38- 34, and Kurzinski set a Seton Hill indoor record in the long jump with a leap of 24-1.

All three marks represent NCAA Provisional qualifying distances.
