TUCSON, Arizona — For the first time in the history of the West Virginia baseball program, the Mountaineers are headed to the NCAA Super Regionals by defeating Grand Canyon 10-6 Sunday night in Tucson!

The Mountaineers were led by JJ Wetherholt, who finished the game 3-6 with 2 runs, and sophomore catcher Logan Sauve, who went 3-5 with 3 runs and 3 RBIs. Junior pitcher Aidan Major got the win, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing just 1 run.

West Virginia, now 36-22, will either play in Chapel Hill, North Carolina or Baton Rouge, Louisiana, depending on the result of Monday’s game between North Carolina and LSU.

“To win a regional like this, we represent a ton of people,” head coach Randy Mazey said. “Not just our university and the community but 1.8 million people in the state of West Virginia that I know are really proud of all of these guys right now and all they accomplished.”

After sweeping the Tucson regional (3-0), the Mountaineers are now headed to the Super Regionals and perhaps beyond! West Virginia will be back in action Friday, June 7 at either North Carolina or LSU.
