A huge congratulations to our own Eagles who earned post-season honors from the North Atlantic Region of the NCBA earlier today. Junior OF Jeff Elliot and Sophomore P Nick Assad were selected First Team, while Sophomore OF Daniel Lu earned Second Team honors. The Eagles plan to use these returning studs to ignite the team on both sides of the ball next year as we begin another run at Paducah, Kentucky and the NCBA World Series.
