Dallas Baptist University has been picked to reclaim the Heartland Conference title in 2017, following a vote by the conference’s head coaches and sports information directors.

St. Edward’s was picked to finish second in the conference after running through 2016 undefeated in conference play at 13-0-1. The Hilltoppers with 110 total points and four first-place votes will look to make it nine straight Division II NCAA Tournament appearances.
