College Notes:

  • North Carolina 5 – South Carolina 4… For the first time in 4 years some die-hard Gamecocks fans will not be vacationing in Omaha because the Tar Heels took a 5-4 win in game 3 of the North Carolina Super Regional to claim the last in the CWS starting this weekend… Just like the first game of the series on Saturday the game went back and forth with errors hurting both teams but more so for the Gamecocks…  The Gamecocks led 4-2 going into the bottom of the 6th when N.C. put 3 runs on the board with the eventual winning run coming home on a bases loaded walk…. The Gamecocks finish the season 43-20 in Chad Holbrook’s first season at the helm….
