CBD-WIU Small

CBD Journal with Western Illinois (May 17th)

The Fighting Leathernecks home season comes to an end this week as they take on the Redbirds of Illinois State this Tuesday. Coming off an 8-4 record in the past 12 games, the purple army looks to use this game to prepare for the final weekend of conference play against North Dakota State.

We had a rough weekend splitting the series with Centenary. We played hard but unfortunately we could only take two of the four games from them. This placed us fourth in the Summit League just a half game back of North Dakota with Southern Utah and IPFW only a game back from us. This weekend is very important. We have to come out with a lot of intensity and play hard every single pitch, every single inning.

The playoff mentality should be kicking in. We have a good chance to make it in and reach our goals of not only making it into the conference tournament, but winning the tournament and advancing to the regionals. We have a great group of guys with the right tools to get it done. It would be a great way to go out for all us seniors.
