Marsh receives tourney MVP honor for UNCW

WILMINGTON – UNC Wilmington’s Trevor Marsh from Asheboro was the Most Outstanding Player of the Coastal Athletic Association Tournament as the Seahawks repeated as baseball league champions Sunday at Brooks Field.

Marsh went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs, including a two with a seventh-inning single that put the Seahawks ahead to stay in second-seeded UNCW’s 6-4 victory against top-seeded College of Charleston.

Marsh, a senior center fielder, batted 8-for-13 in the Seahawks’ three tournament games.

On Monday, UNCW (39-19) was assigned to the Athens, Ga., site as the No. 2 seed in the four-team, double-elimination NCAA regional. The Seahawks will face Georgia Tech (31-23), while Army (31-21) and host Georgia (39-15) meet in the other game.

College of Charleston (41-14) was left out of the tournament.

Big South Tournament champion High Point (24-25) is in the Division I tournament for the first time, going to Clemson (41-14) as the fourth seed in that regional.
