Following a weekend sweep of USC, the University of Washington baseball team is now ranked in the top 25 in all major college baseball polls.

 

The Huskies are ranked as high as 11th in the Collegiate Baseball News and as low as 24th by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

 

Washington, 20-5-1, has won 10 straight games, 17 out of the last 18 and is now in sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 with a two-game lead over UCLA and Oregon.

 

The Huskies begin a three-game series against the nationally ranked Ducks on Friday, April 4 at Husky Ballpark in Seattle.
