Cyclones World Series 2018
May 30, 2018

The Cyclones Baseball team traveled to Greeneville, Tenn., for the NJCAA DIII World Series and landed in fifth place.

The first team the Cyclones played was number-two seeded Rowan Gloucester, playing a day late due to a rain delay. The Cyclones started out fast but Rowan Gloucester moved forward in the winners’ bracket and the Cyclones in the losers' bracket with a final score of 9-4.

SCTCC was still in the running as part of the double-elimination series, playing later that day against Northern Essex. The Clones started out strong with three runs in the second inning and grabbing another 9 throughout the rest of the game, with a final score of 12-7 to move forward.

Still in the game, the Cyclones played Monday, May 28, against Rockingham in a close game, but the Cyclones couldn’t come back from Rockingham’s six runs in the sixth inning. Final score for the Cyclones’ last game of this season was 7-6.

The Cyclones finished fifth in the 2018 World Series.

After a snowy start, the Cyclones’ season ended 20-9 overall and 8-1 in conference. They snagged the NJCAA Region XIII and MCAC titles, beating out three nationally ranked Minnesota teams.
