BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--The D3baseball.com editorial staff believes Adrian College will be top 'Dogs again in the race for the 2018 Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship as part of the website's NCAA Division III Mideast Region Preview. Managing editor Jim Dixon surveys the Mideast scene and you can read his full preview by clicking on the link.

He writes: "Not every team can lose two All-Americans (Ian Mikowski and Ryan Dorow) and still be looking at a conference title. Adrian (34-13) is doing just that. And in a conference that has seen teams behind them in the standings take big steps towards challenging the Bulldogs. You only have to look at the Adrian's All-MIAC pitching staff to know where their strength will be in 2018. D3baseball.com Preseason All-American and two-time reigning MIAA Pitcher of the Year Tommy Parsons (12-1, 1.23 ERA, 60 K) will be the staff ace with All-MIAA Pierce Banks (8-1, 2.43 ERA, 60 K) and Jason Schroeder (6-0, 2.49 ERA, 39 K) giving the Bulldogs one of the best rotations in D-III nation. Senior Hunter Hayes (.345, 4 HR, 46 RBI) is expected to have a big year and help replace some of the production from Mikowski and Dorow."

Adrian is receiving votes in the D3baseball.com Top-25 preseason poll and nationally-ranked No. 39 by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
