The LaGrange baseball team moved into the Top 25 rankings after taking a weekend series from then No. 20 Piedmont.

The Panthers are ranked 24th and are one of four USA South teams in the poll. Huntingdon (13), Methodist (17), and Piedmont (19) are also ranked. The Panthers are 4-2 against Huntingdon and Piedmont.

This is the first time the Panthers have been in the poll since being ranked 10th in the preseason 2018 poll. LC finished the 2017 season at No. 9, a season where it was ranked No. 1 for two weeks.

The Panthers start a three-game USA South series against Covenant at Cleaveland Field in Williamson Stadium on Friday at 7 p.m. The two teams play a doubleheader Saturday starting at 2 p.m.
