CHICAGO - The Saint Xavier University baseball team will take the No. 2 seed into this week's 2007 NAIA Region VII Baseball Tournament hosted by Viterbo University (Wis.) in La Crosse, Wis. The six-team event will begin at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 8, at Copeland Park in La Crosse, Wis., with the Cougars set to take the field in the 3 p.m. game against No. 5 seed Iowa Wesleyan College (Iowa).
Saint Xavier (29-19 overall/18-2 CCAC) trails only No. 1 seeded St. Ambrose University (Iowa) in the tournament bracket. Just last week, the Cougars split a doubleheader with St. Ambrose dropping the first game, 3-2, but bouncing back in game two for a 3-1 victory. SXU has not faced Iowa Wesleyan this season.For tournament information, including ticket prices and directions to Copeland Park, please click here (must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer).
