Bobcat baseball set for NCAA Southeast Regional

THOMASVILLE, N.C. (GC ATHLETICS) – Head coach Tom Carty and the Georgia College baseball team (33-17) buzzed through the recent Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Tournament last weekend, winning their second PBC Tournament title in the last three years. The Bobcats hope momentum continues this week, as Georgia College will start play at the NCAA Southeast Regional.

The Bobcats took the No. 4-seed in the regional, and start with the same opponent from the PBC Tournament Quarterfinals in No. 3-seed and national No. 14 University of North Georgia. Action against the Nighthawks starts Thursday, May 14 at 11 a.m.

Fresh off PBC Tournament MVP honors, junior Jake Sandlin (Evans, Georgia) led a potent Bobcat offense that never trailed in the three games of the PBC Tourney. Sandlin is a .376 hitter with 14 home runs and 54 RBI.

First baseman Clay Ardeeser (Loganville, Georgia) is a .360 hitter, posting 10 home runs and a team-best 60 RBIs. Along with Sandlin and Ardeeser, second baseman Dylan Cook (Portola Valley, California) also earned a slot on the All-PBC Teams. Cook leads the squad with a .395 average, seven round-trippers and 50 RBIs.

Georgia College advances to the school’s 11th appearance in an NCAA Regional, including three-straight trips. The Bobcats have taken the Regional Championship twice, advancing to the World Series in 2010 and 1995.
