2017 New York Regional Tournament Page

            GORHAM, Maine -- The University of Southern Maine baseball team received the word early this morning that it has received an at-large berth into the 2017 NCAA Division III National Championship tournament that begins this week at eight regional sites across the country.

            Forty-one conference champions received automatic berths (Pool A) into the tournament, and two selections were reserved for Pool B.  Thirteen teams, including Southern Maine, received at-large (Pool C) bids to the tournament.

            USM is the second seed in the six-team, double-elimination New York Regional and will face Castleton University in Game Two on Thursday (2:30 p.m.).  Oswego State is the top seed and will play Ithaca College in Game One.  The third game has the number three seed, The College of New Jersey, taking on Tufts University.  The New York Regional is being played at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, N.Y.  The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) is the regional host organization.

            This will be the Huskies 23rd appearance in the NCAA tournament since 1987.  USM has won a regional title on eight occasions, the last in 2014, to advance to the NCAA Division III College World Series.  The Huskies won national titles in 1991 and 1997, and were runner-up in 2013.

            The Huskies take a 30-11 overall record in the regional tournament.  USM went 2-2 in last week's Little East Conference Tournament.
