Stony Brook Going to the College World Series!
The Stony Brook baseball team has shocked the world. As you look at the picture the hands of all the players they show the “O” for Omaha and they made it.
Behind a complete-game, three-hit performance from sophomore starting pitcher Frankie Vanderka (Levittown, N.Y.) and a 15-hit offensive attack, the Seawolves defeated LSU, 7-2, in a decisive game three to eliminate the Tigers and advance to their first-ever College World Series.
Stony Brook is just the second No. 4 seed to reach the College World Series since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1999. The Seawolves are also the first America East team to reach the College World Series.
The College World Series takes place June 14-26 at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb.
Matt Senk enters his 22nd season as the Stony Brook University head baseball coach, having entrenched the Seawolves as one of the top programs in not only the America East but also the Northeast Region.
Last season, Senk guided the Seawolves to a school record 42 wins and its first America East regular season title. Senk was rewarded for the Seawolves success as he was named America East Coach of the Year.
Coach Senk was a supporter of Huntington baseball and travel teams from the areas well as all Long Island players through out the years. We should all be proud that a LI team is in the College World Series
in Omaha, Neb. Lets all root for SBU!
