Okay, as it appears CNU will be coming in before too long, I'll post this to get the cobwebs and dust off...and yes, CNU, Salisbury, York, Mary Washington, and Frostburg have the makings of the core of a very competitive baseball league!  Go Captains!

I will post too, since I have to find the board for posting soon. Anybody out there? Thoughts about the CNU move from CAC fans?

I've always felt the CAC was a competitive conference, and it looks like they're getting better.

This year is going to be very telling for the direction of the CAC before CNU arrives. Wesley still has a very good team and St. Mary's has decided they want to compete too. Who knows if York can rebound this year. This conference is going to come down to the wire. Looking forward to more great games with CNU coming in.

As the login name implies, I am from NoVA and would have been quite happy to see CNU playing CAC teams over the past 4 years versus that drive down to Fayetteville.  Still, I wouldn't have traded the experience for anything.  That being said, I think this is a great move for CNU and the conference.  The Captains will be playing MW (they are only 2 VA D3 Public Schools), they will be playing schools of comparable size, and (the part I would have like the most), they will be making shorter road trips.  I suppose the schedule will be more exposed to the weather than it is now - does it ever warm up at Frostburg? But the prospect of more games with Salisbury is very enticing.  I can see Salisbury taking the place of Shenandoah as CNU's arch rival.  Given the noise that the Gulls fans produce (I think they schedule the lacrosse practice to end just in time for them to come harass CNU) and the turnout when they play at CNU, this could be a very good rivalry.  Don't see much of a downside to the move from my perspective.

Check out the damage the CAC teams have been doing to each other right now. Its going to be a dead heat to the finish line I can feel it.

York is playing well again...Big wins against Frostburg State and one against Salisbury.
My sleeper favorite to take the Conference tournament.

Looks like the CAC will have a new coach for the 12-13 season.  Read that Coach Sheridan has resigned to take a job at George Washington University.  I am sure there will be a lot of interest in this job.  Very good state supported school in VA.

Anyone heard anything regarding the coaching search for the Mary Washington job?  They didn't get a coach in for the start of the fall.  So the assistant coach Foeman is running the team this fall.

Wayne Riser Named Baseball Coach At Mary Washington


The University of Mary Washington has hired Wayne Riser as its new Head Baseball Coach, according to Director of Athletics Ken Tyler. Riser comes to Fredericksburg from Shepherd University, where he served as head coach for 22 years, winning 512 games and ranking as the all-time winningest coach in any sport in Ramsí history. He was inducted as a 2008 member of the Shepherd Athletic Hall of Fame.

Riser replaces 25-year veteran coach Tom Sheridan, who left UMW last month to become the associate head coach at Division I George Washington University.

In his tenure at Shepherd, Riser guided 15 teams to winning seasons, including three 30-win campaigns in the past seven years. His 2012 team won 33 games en route to an NCAA Division II Regional Tournament appearance. Riserís first baseman, Nathan Minnich, was named as the Division II National Player of the Year, and was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the eighth round.

In all, Riser led five teams to NCAA Tournament play, and saw 16 teams win 20 or more games. His teams won numerous WVIAC Northern Division titles, and he was recognized as WVIAC Coach of the Year four times.

Under Riser's guidance, the Rams became a force on the national scene as their 39-7 record in 1997 brought with it the highest NCAA II ranking in school history plus the first-ever trip to the NCAA North Atlantic Regionals. Shepherd's banner year earned Riser WVIAC Coach of the Year and Mid Atlantic Major League Scouts Association College Coach of the Year honors.

In his 22 seasons at Shepherd, Riser coached 45 First Team All-WVIAC and 32 All-Region selections. He has also coached nine All-Americans, six Regional Players of the Year, three Academic All-Americans, a Regional Pitcher of the Year and a Tino Martinez Player of the Year winner. Numerous players have gone on to play professionally.

Riser, who also served as facilities coordinator for the Butcher Athletic Center at Shepherd, served for two years as an assistant coach for the Rams after playing two seasons in the Blue and Gold. A reserve outfielder and part-time pitcher, Riser posted a 2-0 record on the mound for the Rams after transferring from Henderson State University (AR).

After serving as a member of the NCAA Division II Baseball Committee and chair of the North Atlantic Regional Committee for two years, Riser recently completed a stint as chair of the NCAA Division II Baseball Committee. Riser graduated from Shepherd in 1989 with a bachelor of arts degree in secondary education. He earned his master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Shepherd in December 2007.

The good part is that you're a freshman starting the season opener. The bad news is this box score.

This box score isn't one for the scrapbook either.

Southern Virginia is set to join the CAC in 2013-14.

My thinking was that it shows guts to give up 18 runs in the first inning and then string together some zeros. Curious whether another college pitcher has ever given up 18 in the first and went on to pitch a complete game. Both institutions had the starter going the distance in their box scores.
