Big South "Pennant Racing"

If you've been paying attention to the Big South baseball standings lately, you know what a big weekend this is already--if not, here's the deal:

Coastal Carolina is 10-2 / 34-8,
VMI is 10-5 / 21-20,

and the Chanticleers and Keydets have a three-game series running today through Sunday.

With less than four weeks until the Conference Championship, the series will give one school a leg up--seeding is based strictly on the number of Big South wins. They have ten wins apiece coming in, but the winner of the series will be the first-place team coming out.

Friday's game is not being video streamed, but the weekend games are--check them out on The Big South Edge!

Meanwhile, the race in softball is not currently as close as the baseball chase--Winthrop holds first place at 11-1, with Radford sitting at second but well back at 7-2. Fewer games remain to decide that order: the tournament will be played May 8-10 (at Winthrop).

As for life in the Conference Office, not only are all the appropriate arrangements being handled for the remaining events of the current calendar, but attention is increasingly directed to plans, meetings, and publications for next year--the wheel keeps spinning!
