Young Harris College reentered the Collegiate Baseball Division II poll at No. 30 this week.


The Mountain Lions (38-17) had been ranked as high as No. 20 in the poll midway through the season. Young Harris moved back into the poll after winning the Peach Belt Conference Tournament last week, including beating then-No. 8 Columbus State University twice.


Young Harris earned the program's second-ever trip to the NCAA Division II Baseball Tournament and will face No. 5 Wingate University (46-8) in the first round of the Southeast Regional No. 2 in Wingate, North Carolina, Thursday (May 19) at 3 p.m. No. 10 Columbus State (42-11) and Belmont Abbey College (34-17) are the other teams in the double-elimination bracket. The championship game is set for 7 p.m., Saturday, May 21 with an if-necessary game Sunday (May 22) at 3 p.m.
