Welcome to the 3rd day of the NCCAA Division 1 College World Series. The Mid- Continent University Cougars (logo at left) were one of the biggest stories from Day 2’s action. “Upset Thursday” is how yesterday will be remembered as all but 2 games saw the underdog defeat the higher-seeded team.
The 10 seed MCU Cougars stood out as the biggest giant-killers of the day, notching take-downs of both the 2nd-seeded Cal Baptist University Lancers and the (7) Bluefield College Ramblin’ Rams. The 9 seed Nyack College Warriors defeated the Series’ top seeds the Cedarville University Yellow Jackets but then got crushed by the (8) Emmanuel College Lions, so Mid- Continent won the feature spot for today.
Tomorrow the first pitch gets thrown in this year’s NJCAA3 College World Series so there will be even more baseball action. Meanwhile keep checking back here at Balladeer’s Blog for updated scores throughout the day.
