Mercyhurst has now overtaken Slippery Rock in the Western Division with a great home sweep here.

West Virginia State @ Concord –  WVIAC GOTW – West Virginia State wins 4-2, loses 4-11 (More info here)

Concord picked up a big win in the 2nd game to get back to within 2 games of West Virginia State.

West Virginia Wesleyan @ Fairmont State – Fairmont State wins 5-3, loses 5-9 (More info here)

Fairmont State remains one game ahead of West Virginia Wesleyan after these two games.

East Region

Wilmington (Del.) @ Nyack – CACC GOTW – Wilmington (Del.) wins 3-1 (More info here)

Big win for Wilmington (Del.) who moves into a tie with Nyack in the middle of the standings.

Bentley @ Franklin Pierce – Franklin Pierce wins 14-4 (More info here)

Franklin Pierce jumps past Bentley at the top of the NE-10 standings now.

Midwest Region

Rockhurst @ (#22) Southern Indiana – GLVC GOTW – Postponed til Sunday

South Region

(#7) Barry @ (#1) Florida Southern – SSC GOTW – Game of the Day – Florida Southern wins 8-7, loses 2-15 (More info here)

Barry came through with a major win in a major tourble spot today.  They were in danger of being swept and falling 3 games back of Florida Southern (a result that would have pretty much ended the conference race).  Instead they stay in things only 1 game back.

South Central Region

St. Mary’s @ St. Edward’s – HC GOTW – St. Mary’s wins 15-9, loses 10-11 (10)

St. Edward’s absolutely had to have that 2nd game and they got it.  They are still a game back of St. Mary’s, and now trail Texas-Permian Basin by 2 games.

Southwestern Oklahoma @ (#25) Angelo State – LSC GOTW – Angelo State wins 7-3, 12-2 (More info here)

Angelo State is now 3 games back of Abilene Christian, they need to finish the sweep tomorrow now.

Southeastern Region

Limestone @ Mount Olive – Mount Olive wins 11-4, 2-1 (More info here)

Mount Olive still has a chance to catch Belmont Abbey (they trail by 2 games).  Limestone is going to be too far back.

(#29) Barton @ (#21) Erksine –  CC GOTW – Barton wins 12-8 (More info here)

Barton’s win moves them within 1.5 games of Belmont Abbey.  Erskine’s loss drops them 2.5 games out.

(#8) Georgia College @ Columbus State – Georgia College wins 9-8 (more info here)

Georgia College now leads Columbus State by 3.5 games.

Augusta State @ (#24) South Carolina Aiken – South Carolina Aiken wins 21-9 (More info here)

South Carolina Aiken keeps pace with Georgia College, still 2 games out.

April 11th Preview

Atlantic Region

Mercyhurst @ (#30) Slippery Rock

Mercyhurst is only 1 game back of California (Pa.) and could help make this a 2 team race by finishing off Slippery Rock tomorrow (they trail Califonia (Pa.) by 2 games).

Seton Hill @ Davis and Elkins

Good matchup between the top team in the Central (Davis and Elkins) and the #2 team in the North (Seton Hill), but it won’t

West Virginia State @ Concord

West Virginia State leads Concord by 2 games and could extend the lead to 4 games today.

East Region

Wilmington (Del.) @ Nyack

Nyack leads the conference and Wlimington (Del.) is only 2 games back, but a lot of teams are right in it.  This is a big chance for them.

UMass Lowell @ Southern Connecticut

UMass Lowell is only 1 game out but faces a tough series at a Southern Connecticut team who is only 3.5 games out but really can’t afford to fall any further back.

Bentley @ Saint Anselm

Bentley is now .5 games out, and needs to pick up these wins against a Saint Anslem team who is also in need of wins 1.5 games out.

Midwest Region

Rockhurst @ (#22) Southern Indiana

Rockhurst is just a .5 game back of Southern Indiana in the West.  This is a big series to see who the top team in the Division is.

Northern Kentucky @ Indianapolis

Indianapolis has a chance to pull away from a Northern Kentucky team who is 3 games behind them.

South Central Region

Southwestern Oklahoma @ (#25) Angelo State

Angelo State needs a sweep here to keep their chances of catching Abilene Christian.

Southeastern Region

Limestone @ Mount Olive

Limestone is about out of things, and Mount Olive is still in and looks to finish the sweep here.

(#29) Barton @ (#21) Erksine – Game of the Day

Barton’s only 1.5 games out, and Erksine is 2 games out.  These game are huge for both teams who need to keep pace with Belmont Abbey.

(#8) Georgia College @ Columbus State – PBC GOTW

Georgia College can put Columbus State away with a sweep (they are already 3.5 games ahead).

Augusta State @ (#24) South Carolina Aiken

Augusta State is probably done (3.5 games behind), but South Carolina Aiken is only 2 games behind and must keep pace today.
