Baseball's World Series Run Voted #7 Moment in SAC History


The Catawba College baseball team’s run to the NCAA II College World Series has been voted the seventh best moment of the first 20 years of the South Atlantic Conference.  Following a second-place finish in the SAC regular-season standings and an at-large selection to the NCAA Tournament, Catawba went on a tear in Southeast Regional, winning four elimination games, all against teams ranked in the top 10 of the nation, to reach the NCAA World Series for the first time in school history. 

After falling to Tusculum in the first round of the regionals, Catawba stayed alive by beating Mount Olive, Armstrong, Tusculum in a rematch and Francis Marion in the regional final to advance to the World Series.  The Indians then won two World Series games before being eliminated by eventual national champion West Chester. 

Strong defense and a pitching staff led by lefty Nick Lomascolo carried Catawba throughout its World Series run, as the Indians allowed an average of just 2.67 runs in nine postseason games.  The team finished the year 45-17 overall.

The SAC is celebrating 20 years in NCAA Division II by counting down the top 20 moments from the past two decades in a series titled SAC 20 for 20.  Click the link below to see moments No. 6-20.
