N.C. State’s baseball team is headed to the Columbia, S.C., for its NCAA regional. East Carolina is traveling to Charlottesville, Va.
And North Carolina, as expected, will stay home at Boshamer Stadium to host for the fifth time in six years, as reward for earning the No. 3 overall national seed.
“Everybody’s doubted us the whole year, and people still doubt us,’’ said Tar Heels senior pitcher Greg Holt. “They say we’re too high of a national seed, that we didn’t deserve it, all this, all that. But now is the time to show people why we are the No. 3 national seed – we’ve won 40-plus games this season, and our trip to Omaha starts now.”
