SAC Baseball Championship Bracket Finalized

ROCK HILL, S.C. – The 2014 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Baseball Championship bracket was finalized on Saturday, with regular-season champions Catawba and Wingate earning the top two seeds.

Catawba and Wingate each finished 20-7 in SAC games after their final conference series were rained out over the weekend. Catawba will be the No. 1 seed in the championship, however, by virtue of its 2-1 series win over the Bulldogs earlier this season.

Catawba is 27-16 overall, and Wingate is 28-14. The Indians’ SAC title is the program’s second-straight and ninth in program history, while WU’s is the school’s sixth overall and first since 2010.

In Thursday’s SAC Championship first round, Catawba will play No. 6 seed Anderson, and Wingate will face off against fifth-seeded Tusculum. AU finished the season 13-16 in conference games, while TC went 14-14.

Thursday’s final first-round matchup will pit No. 3 seed Lincoln Memorial – the event’s defending champion – against No. 4 seed Newberry. LMU completed conference play at 16-8, and Newberry went 17-13. The Wolves have also won nine-straight games overall, the longest current streak in the league.

Every game of the SAC Championship will take place at McNair Field in Forest City, N.C. Opening-round play begins at noon on Thursday.
