CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Mike Fox just couldn’t help himself.

Moments after North Carolina defeated East Carolina 9-3 to clinch a fourth straight College World Series trip, the 53-year-old coach ran to his wife’s front-row seat and climbed up the protective net in front of the stands to give her a celebratory kiss.

“I tried to enjoy this win more than I ever have here, just to kind of let loose,” Fox said. “I want to be respectful of the other team and not act like a kid, but I felt like a kid today when it was over. You can’t ever take this for granted.”

The Tar Heels (47-16) had plenty to celebrate after Sunday’s sweep of their best-of-three super regional series against their instate rival. Their pitchers dominated a lineup in which every hitter was batting at least .300, and they piled up 30 hits over two games to provide more than enough run support.
