HUNTSVILLE – With the conclusion of the College World Series on Tuesday and the release of several final polls on Wednesday, Sam Houston State's historic run to the NCAA Tallahassee Super Regionals did not go unnoticed.

The Bearkats locked in rankings in all four polls released on Wednesday, with Perfect Game and the USA Today Coaches Poll yet to release their final marks.

Sam Houston ranked No. 14 per Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, No. 16 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, No. 18 from D1Baseball.com and No. 20 courtesy of Baseball America.

The recognition follows a season in which Sam Houston stormed back to win three-straight elimination games, including two in the finals against host Texas Tech to capture the NCAA Lubbock Regional before bowing out as one of the final 16 teams standing in the Super Regionals.

The squad finished with a 44-23 record, matching the 1987 team for the most in Division I program history. The NCAA Tournament appearance was the 11th in the last 11 years for the program while the team won 40 games in consecutive seasons for the first time in Division I lore.
