No. 1 FGCU takes on No. 8 UNF in first round of A-Sun tournament

The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles baseball team claimed its fourth Atlantic Sun regular season title

in program history after taking down Lipscomb, in Nashville followed by a loss by Mercer on

Friday night.

The Eagles, who were predicted to finish third in the coach’s preseason polls, went 19-7 in conference

play this season after losing seven key players in the MLB draft last summer.

This marks the fifth regular season title FGCU Athletics has collected this season, starting with

women’s soccer (7-0-2, A-Sun), followed by men’s soccer (6-1-1, A-Sun), men’s basketball (14-4, A-
Sun) and women’s basketball (17-1, A-Sun).

The Eagles will take the No. 1 seed in the A-Sun tournament starting Wednesday, May 21 at 5 p.m. when they take on No. 8 North Florida.

The Eagles have had the advantage over UNF during the 2014 season. FGCU has dominated the play over UNF including two sweeps in three of the series played between the teams. The Eagles have not lost a series to UNF. Though North Florida was predicted as one of the two teams that would finish ahead of the Eagles, they ended up at No. 8 seed.

The A-Sun tournament will be held at Swanson Stadium from May 21-25. Tickets are available at $6 for adults and FGCU students get in free.
