WILMINGTON, N.C. – The Colonial Athletic Association has awarded its 2010 and 2011 baseball championships to UNC Wilmington, extending the school’s run of hosting the event to eight consecutive seasons and 10 times overall.

The decision was made late last week during the league’s summer meeting in Hilton Head, S.C., and announced Monday. Continue reading

CAA Tournament Preview

The CAA starts tournament play in the final year of the six team format. The conference will cut the number of playoff teams to four next season, which is a shame given the parity this year. Entering the final weekend of play, only two teams had locked up spots, and five teams were battling for the remaining three spots on the final day of the season.

James Madison, which won the tournament last season, was knocked out of the playoffs by George Mason in the final weekend and became the first team with a winning CAA record not to make the six team tournament. UNC Wilmington, last season’s regular season champion, will be a three seed heading into the playoffs.

The double elimination tournament starts at noon Wednesday at Brooks Field in Wilmington, N.C. when top seeded George Mason takes on sixth seeded Delaware. Here’s a rundown of each of the six teams. Continue reading

CAA Weekend Preview

Georgia State (23-13, 6-3) at Northeastern (18-12, 5-4)
This is an important series for the Huskies. The Panthers are probably the best CAA team NU has faced up to this point. Winning the weekend would be a huge boost going forward for Northeastern. Freshman lefty Andrew Leenhouts (0-1, 1.04) shined on the big stage at Fenway Park during the Beanpot championship game Monday, striking out six in 3 and 2/3 innings. Dan Zehr has also been a key piece in a talented Husky ‘pen. The senior lefthander leads the team with 15 appearances and has a 2-1 record with a 2.16 ERA. Offensively, outfielder Frank Compagnone (.340-1-8) appears to be fully recovered from a knee injury which shelved him for the early going. The junior has slid up to the No. 2 spot in the order and has been red hot the past week.
