Mount Olive, for the third straight week, is the nation's top-ranked Division II team in the latest Collegiate Baseball and Ping Baseball top 30 polls.

The Trojans (44-5 overall) received 476 of 480 points in the Collegiate Baseball rankings, eight points ahead of Emporia State (Kan.), which owns the nation's longest winning streak at 35 games.

The NCBWA poll will be released today.

Mount Olive rallied from five runs down to beat Belmont Abbey 13-9 on Sunday and capture its third consecutive Conference Carolinas tournament championship. The Trojans earned their third straight trip to the South Atlantic Regional, which will be played May 15-18.
