UW Baseball Club Ends Season at Regional Tournament
The University of Wyoming club baseball team ended its season with one win and two losses in last weekend’s National Club Baseball Association Mid-America Regional in Topeka, Kan.
Competing for the first time in Division I of the club sport, UW earned the opportunity to play in the regional tournament by winning the West Division with a 12-6 league record. The Pokes dropped the opening game to second-seeded Iowa 6-2, and came back to defeat top-seeded Missouri 12-11. UW closed the season with a 7-2 loss to the University of Iowa.
Colorado State won the regional tournament and will play Utah State in the Division I World Series May 23 in Tampa, Fla.
Wyoming’s overall record was 15-16. UW competed in the North Division against club teams from the University of Colorado, Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado. The Pokes swept all six games against the Buffs; had their only losing conference mark against the Rams, going 2-4; and took four of six games against the Bears.
In Division II competition, UW won back-to-back District VIII championships in 2008 and 2009, and then won three straight titles from 2011 through 2013. The team made Division II World Series appearances during that stretch.
