Breaking: Columbus State wins regional, advances to College World Series

After losing to #13 Belmont Abbey on Saturday, Columbus State, who had won their first two games in the NCAA D2 Southeast Regional, including an impressive win over #2 North Greenville (regional host), the Cougars got a shot at redemption. After defeating #2 North Greenville for a second time in the loser’s bracket, CSU defeated Belmont Abbey in two consecutive games to win the Southeast Regional and punch their ticket to the Division II College World Series in Cary, NC.

The road looked pretty rough for Columbus State after Saturday’s loss, knowing they’d have to play one of the best — if not the best — team in the nation and then, should they win that, they’d have to win two consecutive games in the championship round. Well, they did it all in convicing fashion. The Cougars took down North Greenville 6-3 before outscoring Belmont Abbey by a combined 15-7 in the two championship contests, including a 10-7 slugfest in game two.

The Cougars (40-12) entered the Southeast Regional as the #4 seed. They failed to reach the Peach Belt Conference championship and seemingly faced longshot odds to capture the regional with the top two teams in the nation on display in the regional in North Greenville and Georgia College, ranked #2 and #1, respectively, in the most recent NCAA rankings. North Greenville would suffer both of their losses at the hands of Columbus State while #1-ranked Georgia College, who won their regular season series over CSU, would collapse in the regional, dropping their first game in big fashion before winning the second and falling in game three.

Columbus State seized on the opportunity and will be competing among the best Division II teams in the nation beginning May 26th in Cary, North Carolina. Congrats to the Cougars and best of luck in the College World Series! Stay with Peachtree Pennant for the latest coverage of Columbus State baseball.
