The first of three NJCAA polls was released earlier this week, and Collegiate Baseball News has Chattahoochee Valley Community College as the second ranked team in America to start the 2017 season.

Sitting right behind 2016 National Champion, Yavapai, the Pirates are coming off a Championship Round berth in the 2016 JUCO World Series, their 3rd straight appearance in Grand Junction, Colorado, and a record breaking 52-12 season.

With the entire starting infield returning in 1B Carson Hughes, 2B AJ Willoughby, SS Jayson Cook and 3B Jaylen Smith, the sophomore foursome return a strong nucleus of position players to lead a very talented, but young, pitching staff into the 2017 campaign.


Along with Collegiate Baseball News’ poll, Perfect Game USA and the NJCAA will release their respective pre-season polls after the turn of the calendar in January of 2017.
