NEW PENN TEAM PREVIEWS

NEW PENN TEAM PREVIEWS: After getting the #3 seed in the regional tournament, West Virginia rolled through the weekend going 3-0 to secure their spot in the World Series.   The Mountaineers had an impressive 12-3 record in conference and 16-5 overall record to lock them in as the #6 seed for the World Series. After a tough opening round loss, WVU bounced back to win two straight before falling to World Series Champ, Pitt State, in the semi-finals.

After almost getting the National Championship, is West Virginia the favorite in the New Penn and all of D2, or will newcomer to the region Ohio State, have something to say about it.  In a region full of talent and potential Top 20 teams, check out the New Penn Team Previews to see how the spring may turn out. #RoadToKansas

NORTHERN PLAINS TEAM PREVIEW: Wisconsin took home the title last year as they walked through the Regional, going 3-0 on the weekend.  With a 10-2 conference record and a 16-4 overall record, Wisconsin earned the #4 seed in the World Series.  They got off to a great start in defeating Georgia Southern, but then fell to the eventual champion, Pitt State.  Wisconsin did not give up as they mad it to the semi-final game, where they lost to runner-up Air Force.

After a deep postseason run, is Wisconsin the favorite to repeat as Northern Plains Champion, or will they face opposition with a new conference in the region.  Check out the Northern Plains Team Preview to find out! #RoadToKansas
