The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) unveiled its Baseball Preseason Coaches Poll on Monday, offering insights into the expected standings for the upcoming season in the five-team South Division. 

Jefferson secured the third position, Chestnut Hill placed fourth, and Holy Family claimed the fifth spot. 

Jefferson, concluding the previous season with a 26-22 record and a 15-9 standing in conference play, will again rely on senior Chris McLean to lead the offense. The Hatfield native (North Penn) led the club last season with a .381 batting average, seven homers, and 44 RBIs. The Rams, led by Head Coach Pat Horvath in his 15th season, reached he CACC Tournament last season but were knocked out by Goldey-Beacom in the opening round.

Chestnut Hill, holding a .500 record in CACC play, encountered difficulties outside the conference, finishing the last season with an 18-27 mark. The team is proactively addressing areas of improvement as they approach the new season. Junior catcher Justin Geiger, a standout contributor with a .333 batting average, 33 RBIs, and an .854 OPS last year, is set to play a crucial role. 

Holy Family, embarking on its inaugural season, secured the fifth position in the Preseason Poll. Head Coach Kyle Davis, leveraging his prior CACC coaching experience at the University of the Sciences, anticipates a promising lineup primarily comprised of talent from the Philadelphia region.

Goldey-Beacom was selected to win the division.
