MELBOURNE, Fla. (Baseball)— After an 8-1 start to the 2014 season, the Florida Tech Panthers have climbed into two national polls.

The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Top-30 Poll ranked the Panthers at No. 8. The Panthers received votes in the prior preseason poll, and now find themselves in the top-10. Fellow Sunshine State Conference member Nova Southeastern made a similar jump from receiving votes to No. 9.

The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association ranked the Panthers at No. 16 in their top-25 poll. The squad was not ranked in the NCBWA Preseason Top-25 Poll. The NCBWA also ranked the Panthers at No. 4 in their first South Region Poll.

Tampa ranks first in both national polls. Lynn joins the Panthers, Nova, and Tampa in the CBN Top-30 at No. 22 and Barry is at No. 25 giving the SSC five teams in the poll.

The Panthers will face both Barry in a non-conference game, and will open SSC play against Nova Southeastern next week.
