WAC Tournament Preview: Round One

The 2010 WAC Tournament is being held in Mesa, Ariz. at Hohokam Field, better known as the spring training facility of the Chicago Cubs.  This marks the first season since the tournament was reinstated in 2006 that it is being held at a neutral site.  After another competitive conference season, Fresno State emerged as the regular season champion.  It’s their fourth regular season title in five years with a conference record of 16-8.  New Mexico State finished in a tie for second place with Nevada at 14-9-1 but earned the 2-seed in the tournament by virtue of the Aggies’ head-to-head record of 2-1-1 against the Wolf Pack.  Hawai’i earned the 4-seed with a strong finish as they won six of their final eight conference games to finish 12-12 in league play.  Louisiana Tech is the 5-seed having lost three of their final four conference games to finish 11-13 and San Jose State is the 6-seed having lost three of their final four conference games to finish 9-15 after winning the regular season last year with a 15-7 record.  Sacramento State finished in seventh place and ends their conference season with a record of 7-17 in league play and 18-35-1 overall.

Foley’s Weekend Thoughts

GriffinUSD I apologize for not giving you some thoughts from Saturday night but I had some other commitments come up around here.

Tyler Holt from Florida State hit for the cycle on Sunday in a 9-5 victory over the Maryland Terps. Holt picked up a single in the first, double in the second, triple in the third, and hit a homer in the fifth. Holt said the following about the cycle "It felt good, I got some good swings in. The first two hits – the single and the double – went my way and then I finally got some good swings and got the last two." Coach Mike Martin was fired up about the cycle as he stated: “There are two things that really fire me up when I am watching a game – a no-no and the cycle. That fired me up. I will be honest with you, I don’t go to rock concerts but I guess they light the lighters – I would have lit a lighter on that one."
