Alumni Trio Off To College World Series
Cole Peragine, Tanner Nivins and Jas Rakkar will be off to Omaha Nebraska next week to play for college baseball's biggest prize. The Stony Brook Seawolves won their 52nd game of the season by knocking off the #1 ranked SEC Champion LSU Tigers Sunday night to advance to the College World Series.
Cole, Tanner and Jas are the first Terriers ever to earn this opportunity. In the history of college
baseball, there has been but a handful of Canadians that have ever competed for college baseball's NCAA D1 title.
The Seawolves pulled off the stunning 7-2 victory in Baton Rouge Sunday night in front of 10,620 raucous LSU Tiger fans, largest crowd in LSU baseball history.
The Seawolves will face the Florida Gators, UCLA Bruins, Arizona Wildcats, Florida State Seminoles and the two time defending champion South Carolina Gamecocks.
Best of luck to Cole, Tanner, Jas and all the Seawolves at the College World Series!
