Regional Champs Again! Dores On To The Supers
They may have been a day late (lost Sunday night).
But the VandyBoys did not come up short, defeating the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 7-1 at Hawkins Field Monday evening to win the Nashville NCAA Baseball Regionals.
It sets up the Black & Gold's fourth trip to the Super Regionals (the second in three years), hosting Louisville in a best 2 out of 3 series beginning Saturday afternoon. The winner goes to the College World Series in Omaha.
