The Western New England University baseball team has maintained its position at No. 5 in this week's edition of the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) Division III Coaches Poll, which was released last night.

Southern Maine is ranked No. 1 with 43 points and three first place votes, while Tufts is right behind at No. 2, also receiving three first place nods. Amherst and Wheaton are slotted third and fourth, respectively.
