GREENVILLE, N.C. - Following the conclusion of the 2011 College World Series, the East Carolina baseball team garnered a pair of national rankings in two major polls last week.

The Pirates (41-21), who made their third regional final in four NCAA appearances under Head Coach Billy Godwin, were ranked No. 25 by Baseball America and No. 29 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) when each of their final polls were announced last week.

ECU also received votes in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' poll for the 12th-straight week when the publication revealed its final poll back on May 30. The final rankings also marked the seventh time they have appeared in the polls in 2011 and 14th time in school history they capped off a season nationally-ranked.
