Georgia baseball receives national seed, Athens regional revealed

It says something about Florida State's consistent excellence that all these accomplishments just blend together, and Martin couldn't even remember if his team won the ACC tournament one year ago. The Beavers had already been announced as the No. 3 national seed, but the Pac-12 runners-up were forced to sit through breakdowns of 15 regionals before their upcoming opponents would be revealed.

Aces Brady Singer (10-1, 2.25 ERA) and Jackson Kowar (9-4, 3.21 ERA) along with closer Michael Byrne (1.99 ERA, 13 saves) lead Florida on the mound. We've got Penn State, they're from our part of the country, they've played in Omaha, they've played in our regional, so we know how good they are.

"We're trying to repeat what we did previous year", Cofer said on Friday. In just the third ACC Championship finale to go to extra innings and the first since 2003, Florida State scored the final six runs of the game to clinch the ACC's automatic berth in the 2018 NCAA Championship.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The NCAA has granted Florida State forward Phil Cofer's request for another year of eligibility.

Shemiah Sanchez knotted the game up in the fifth inning, 5-5, with her first career grand slam on a 1-0 count, scoring Doyle, Griggs and Andrews.

The committee clearly saw no issue with Texas' lackluster tournament results rewarding the Longhorns overall body of work as Big 12 regular season champions. The Bulldogs are the No. 8 national seed.

The Red Raiders are hosting for the sixth time overall and for a third-consecutive year after boasting an RPI of 10 to end the year.

UNC (38-18), the No. 6 national seed and ACC regular-season champions, opens the Chapel Hill Regional with a 7 p.m. game against No. 4 seed North Carolina A&T (MEAC Tournament champions).

Texas A&M earned a No. 3 seed in the Austin Regional and will face No. 2 seed Indiana.

The victor of the double-elimination regional earns a spot in the NCAA Super Regionals. The Cards also are familiar with Kent State, having played the Golden Flashes in past seasons and having seen them in NCAA regionals in Louisville.

The South Carolina Gamecocks baseball team will begin their quest to get to the College World Series with a matchup against Ohio State.
