SAU Picked to win Great American Conference

Southern Arkansas - the three-time Great American Conference baseball tournament champions - will enter 2015 as the preseason favorite, following a vote of the league's 11 head coaches. Arkansas Tech, the 2014 regular-season champion placed second.

The Muleriders posted a 39-19 record in 2014 and advanced to the NCAA Regionals for the seventh consecutive season. They return five All-GAC selections, highlighted by Trevor Rucker, the 2014 GAC Freshman of the Year and GAC Tournament MVP.  He hit .342 with six home runs, 37 RBI and 35 stolen bases. On the mound, SAU brings back a pair of All-GAC selections - Timothy Buchanan and Janson Carr – as well as Yumezo Densaki, who threw a complete game in the GAC Tournament title game.

The UAFS baseball team has been picked to finish sixth in the Heartland Conference this spring in the recently released preseason poll conducted by the league's head coaches and sports information directors.
UAFS, which will begin its sixth season of NCAA Division II competition and fourth as an active member, received 101 points in the overall voting. The Diamond Lions finished 25-26 overall and 14-16 in conference play this past spring. They qualified for the conference tournament as the No. 4 seed but lost to No. 1 seed St. Edward's and No. 3 seed Newman in the conference tournament.
