Chestnut Hill earns recognition in preseason NCBWA poll

Chestnut Hill College is ranked 10th in the newly released NCBWA East Region 2020 Preseason Poll. The club is the lone Philly-region D-II team to earn poll recognition.

The Griffins set a program record for Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) wins last season with 18 and earned their ninth consecutive berth to the conference tournament. The club finished the season with a 27-22 overall record.

Pitcher Billy Bethel, outfielder John Contoudis, third baseman Ameir Uzzell, and first baseman Andrew Dietz are returning All-CACC honorees.

The Griffins open the 2020 season on Saturday, February 29, when they meet Bentley University at the ​​​​Santaluces (Florida) Athletic and Aquatic Complex for a 12:00 p.m. doubleheader. The club opens the home portion of the schedule on Saturday, March 14, with a doubleheader against Lincoln University.

A full Chestnut Hill preview will run later this month.
