Diamond Heels fall four spots in latest D1Baseball

The North Carolina Tar Heels’ baseball program faced a tough test over the weekend, opening up Atlantic Coast Conference play by hosting Virginia in Chapel Hill. The weekend series was still three games but cut short by a day with weather forcing a doubleheader on Saturday

For the Tar Heels, the results weren’t what they wanted from that series winning just one game after having the lead in all three. But they did finish the week 3-2 overall with wins over Western Carolina and Penn State before salvaging the final game against Virginia.

At 12-4 overall, the Tar Heels fell four spots in the latest D1Baseball rankings released on Monday, checking in at No. 18.

With the No. 18 ranking, the Tar Heels are the fifth-ranked ACC team in the rankings behind No. 4 Wake Forest, No. 8 Louisville, No. 14 Virginia and No. 17 Virginia Tech.

Florida State (No. 21) and NC State (No. 23) were also ranked this week.

Next up for North Carolina will be on the road to face Charlotte Tuesday and then back home to host High Point on Wednesday. They will stay In Chapel Hill for another ACC home series against Pitt this weekend.
