Softball, Baseball, Men’s Golf still swinging

UNCG Softball won the SoCon Tournament

By this time of year, you’d expect the spring sports to have wound down. Not this year at UNCG.

No. 1 seed UNCG Softball claimed its first-ever Southern Conference Tournament Championship with a 5-2 victory over the ETSU Buccaneers on Saturday at UNCG Softball Stadium. The win earned the team a spot in the NCAA tournament as they head to the Columbia, South Carolina Regional this weekend.

The host school is South Carolina, who will square off with UNCG at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Joining the Spartans and Gamecocks in the regional is Liberty and Hofstra. The regional will run Friday, May 18, through Sunday, May 20. UNCG Softball’s NCAA Regional appearance is the second in program history.

UNCG Baseball earned the Southern Conference’s Regular Season Championship after defeating The Citadel Bulldogs Sunday afternoon. This is the second SoCon Regular Season Title in program history after earning the title in the first season in the SoCon in 1998. They will be the top seed in the SoCon Tournament.

The UNCG men’s golf team clinched an automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals by winning its first-ever Southern Conference Championship last Tuesday. The team began play in the NCAA Stockton, California, Regional earlier this week. This marks the Spartans’ second-ever NCAA Regional play in program history.
