This past weekend, the College of Charleston baseball team started off their season in the best way possible – with a clean sweep of opponent Southeast Missouri State.
After months and months of controversy and turbulence surrounding the program, it is a great sign that in their first action the team was able to dominate.
The Cougars secured their three wins this weekend by a collective 17-7 margin, including a 6-0 outing in game two.
The closest meeting between these teams was on Sunday, for game three. The College did what they needed to do to secure the W in this barn-burner and start the season off with a sweep.
Two of the team captains, Dupree Hart and Logan McRae, lead the way with 3 RBI’s apiece this weekend.
Coach Holbrook’s coming out party couldn’t have gone any better. The team managed to send a message while also figuring out what their personnel is capable of.
Holding down their home turf was critical for this team, as they remain on a home stint for their next four matchups. The Cougars’ first away action won’t be until March 6th.
Although Southeast Missouri is not a member of the CAA, it is a team that found success last year.
Defeating a worthy out of conference opponent like the Redhawks handily should give the Cougars considerable confidence, as the first chunk of their season will consist of non-conference foes.
The College of Charleston looks to pile up another non-conference win this Wednesday as they take on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers right here at Patriots Point.
