W&J in D-III tournament

The Washington & Jefferson College baseball team received an at-large berth to the NCAA Division III tournament.
The Presidents (32-10) are the No. 4 seed in the seven-team Mideast Regional that begins Wednesday at Don Schaly Stadium in Marietta, Ohio. The Presidents will play fifth-seeded Adrian (Mich.) at 9:30 a.m. in the first game of the double-elimination tournament.
Heidelberg (37-6), the Ohio Athletic Conference champion, is the top seed. The Student Princes have a first-round bye and will play the W&J-Adrian winner in the second round Wednesday at 8 p.m.
North Coast Athletic Conference champion Wooster (34-7) is the No. 2 seed and will play Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference champion Penn State-Behrend (29-14) at 4:30 p.m. At 1 p.m. Presidents’ Athletic Conference tournament champion Thomas More (31-14) plays Marietta (32-11).
Washington & Jefferson won the PAC’s regular-season title but lost to Thomas More in the finals of the conference tournament. Adrian is the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference champion and making its fifth trip to the NCAA tournament. The Bulldogs won a regional in 2008 and advanced to the World Series, finishing fourth.
W&J is in the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive year. The Presidents had a 2-2 record in a regional at Salisbury, Md., last season.
