Bridgewater Seniors Trying to Extend Careers at NCAAs

Six baseball teams are at Piedmont College in Demorest, Georgia competing for the South Regional title this week. Only one will advance to the Division III College World Series, while the other five will have an early start to their summers.

Bridgewater is just as hopeful as the other 55 teams competing across the country in this week's regional tournaments.

The Eagles are led by 11 seniors that are playing their final games of their collegiate careers.

The class of 2014 has accumulated 124 wins, including their only ODAC tournament title that they won last month.

"They're eager for the opportunity," said head coach Curt Kendall. "We felt like we could compete last year. When you get there, you just have to be sharp. Everybody's pretty good. You gotta execute the little things that we know we gotta do anyway, so having to execute on offense and having to do well on the mound to give us a chance and that's what our game plan will be going down here."

For their season to continue, the eagles will have to avoid losing twice, and the campaign for a spot in Appleton, Wisconsin begins tomorrow night against Birmingham Southern.

"Pretty much anything to continue playing right now," said senior outfielder Nick Fulk. "We keep winning, we keep playing, because after this, for a lot of us, our baseball careers are over. So as long as we keep winning, we keep playing. Of course we were here last year playing at regionals so we've been there before. We know what we need to do."
