Crusaders Earn Top Seed in NCAA Southeast Regional

North Greenville baseball made history on Sunday evening as it secured the top seed in the NCAA Division II Southeast Region.

The Crusaders earned the regionís top seed after a record-breaking season which saw the team ranked first in D-II baseball for the first time in program history. NGUís resume was impressive and deserving of the top seed, having won all but one three-game set played this season, headlined by wins over #15 Belmont Abbey, #24 Mount Olive, and #4 Florida Southern.

North Greenville won each of its eight Conference Carolinas series this season which resulted in the programís first regular season title. The Crusaders also tacked on the teamís second Conference Carolinas tournament championship to cap the season.

Sunday nightís announcement made official the programís trip to the NCAA tournament after earning an automatic bid in 2015. It also added another first and a program-best as it was the first NGU program to earn a top seed in an NCAA Tournament and the highest seed in program history as well.

The Crusaders will host regional tournament at Ray & Bea Dillard Field with games scheduled to start on Thursday afternoon in Tigerville.
