Regional Championship Sends Gorloks to Second Straight NCAA Series

| May 20, 2013

The Webster University baseball team is heading to the NCAA III Baseball Championship in Appleton, Wis. May 24, for a second straight year after defeating Concordia University Chicago.

Winning the Augustana/Central Regional, the Webster University baseball team is heading to the NCAA III Baseball Championship for a second straight year after defeating Concordia University Chicago, 7-3, at Moline, Ill., on May 18.

Senior Alex Kazmierski, named the Regional Most Valuable Player, tripled home the go-ahead runs in the Gorloks’ four-run eighth inning.

The Gorloks, ranked 12th in the most recent D3baseball.com and ABCA national polls, entered the regional as the #1 seed, but had to win three straight games after losing a second round contest. Webster defeated Concordia, 9-2, the previous day, and after the Cougars beat host Augustana to reach the final, the Gorloks defeated them a second time for the title, finishing 4-1 at Moline.

In 2012, Webster won the Millington Regional (Tenn.), advancing to the NCAA III Baseball Championship for the first time in program history. The Gorloks, the only NCAA III team in Missouri to ever make the NCAA III Baseball Championship, will be in Appleton, Wis., on May 24 to appear in their second straight Championship.

The Gorloks are now 36-10 overall, with the 36 wins tying the school record set in 2012.
