Southland Baseball Champ Southeastern finishes regular season by sweeping UNO

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Southeastern Louisiana Lions enter next week's Southland Conference baseball tournament on a high note. Just two days after capturing the program's first-ever Southland Conference Regular Season Crown with a win over UNO, the Lions finished off their regular season, Saturday, sweeping a double-header against the Privateers.

With the wins, Southeastern (41-15, 25-5) caps-off a stellar regular-season performance. The Lions set new regular season marks for most overall wins in school history and most conference wins in Southland Conference history, according to Southeastern's Sports Information Department. Also, by taking the series against UNO (14-40, 3-26), the Lions took possession of the inaugural Pontchartrain Bowl trophy.

In Game 1, Carson Crites powered the Lion offense in an 8-2 win. Crites went 3-for-4 with a home run, a triple, two RBIs and two runs scored. Daniel Midyett also collected two RBIs, going 1-for-3 at the plate. Jake Johnson earned the win on the mound. The Privateers were led by Sam Carriere and Jonathan Santana who each had one RBI.

Crites shined again in Game 2 as the Lions picked up the 5-1 victory. The sophomore infielder launched a ball over the fence for his second home run of the day. He finished 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs. Kyle Cedotal picked up the win, his ninth of the year.

Top-seeded Southeastern will clash with No. 8 seed Texas A&M - Corpus Christi, in the first round of the 2015 Southland Conference Baseball Tournament. First pitch is set for 4 p.m., Wednesday.

    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites. Georgia holds No. 2 in my poll. Another year of Jake Fromme under center is a great reason to have the Dawgs here. South Carolina ...more>>
