JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 9, 2011)
- With three weeks in the books, the ETSU baseball team is among some impressive company nationally as the Bucs have risen to a No. 15ranking in the RPI by WarrenNolan.com.
 
The Buccaneers (7-2, 1-0 A-Sun) lead the way for the Atlantic Sun which ranks fifth in conference RPI. The A-Sun currently has five teams that boast a top 100 RPI including Stetson (30), Jacksonville (32), Kennesaw State (34) and Campbell (72), while also holding the fifth-best winning percentage in the country as the league only trails the Southeastern Conference, Conference USA, the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big XII.
 
ETSU currently boasts a top 50 strength of schedule, and is 4-2 against teams in the RPI top 100 and 2-1 against the RPI top 50. The Bucs are just ahead of national powerhouses Cal State Fullerton (16), Texas (18) and Georgia Tech (21) in the RPI.
 
The Bucs return to action this weekend as they head to Jacksonville, Fla. to face North Florida in a three-game conference series. For more information on Buccaneer baseball or any other athletic news, please visit www.ETSUBucs.com.
