DALLAS (NCBWA) – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association continues its tradition of NCAA Division I polls for the 16th year with its 2013 weekly surveys. Polls will be circulated from Feb. 18-June 27 following the 67th annual NCAA World Series in Omaha, Neb., at TD Ameritade Park.

Arkansas (preseason), North Carolina (next 10 surveys), Vanderbilt (April 29-May 20), and LSU (May 27-June 4) have been No. 1 during 2013. All eight NCAA Super Regional hosts are ranked among last and this week’s Top 30. The next-to-last NCBWA poll will be released after the June 8-11 NCAA Super Regional contests prior to the CWS.

The poll voters come from 44 college baseball writers and related media persons from throughout the nation.
