The OAC does get all three in.  BW and Berg are the 2 seeds in their regionals; Ott is the 3 seed in theirs.  The Wooster (Ott) and Adrian (Berg) regionals meet in the super regional effectively making those two 4 team regionals the de facto Mideast regional under the old system.  BW got shipped to the Concordia-Chi regional.  With all of our teams in different spots we're free to root for everyone.  Go carry that flag boys!

p.s. BW and Berg were both in the top 35 in SOS.  Wooster and Case were top 6.  Only one of them won 30 games.  All of them got in.  Glad to see challenging schedules rewarded.

Nice job by the OAC.  Keohane is Mideast Player of the Yr. and Cody is Pitcher of the Yr.  Psychas and Mary joined them on 1st team.  Fitzgerald was named COY.

Congrats to BW's Danny Cody on being the first D3 player drafted this year (17th round).  Good luck to the young man!

So JCU let's Thibeault go and makes his top assistant, Ryan Nordquist, the interim HC.  Now Nordquist tweets that he has accepted an asst. job back at BW.  Certainly some moving pieces in UH right now.  The JCU website still shows Nordquist as interim HC.  I hope they make the permanent hire soon because now is when these coaches are out on the road watching recruits.  Every week that goes by is hurting their recruiting.

Some cool news out of Alliance.  Mount is currently installing a turf infield.  It looks like the end product will be very similar to what Wooster did.  This is phase 1 of the field upgrades.  The next phase will include OF turf, new home dugout/pressbox and new grandstands.

Wow.  The renovations at Schaly are not too shabby.  With the new turf, wall and the already existing seating and lights they've definitely solidified their crown as the best facility in the the OAC.  Etta field upgrades

On another forum, there was a discussion about facilities at d3, and what was the gold standard. Schaly was one of the field/stadiums mentioned. Wont be many rain outs there in the future.

I would say Schaly is the best facility in the ME region easily.  Adrian would be the clear #2.  There are others that are nice, but those two have everything.  If you want to see a random D3 school with great facilities check out the University of Scranton.
