Home Run!

What a year it has been for Wake Forest athletics, and the baseball team capped it with a thriller of a showing earlier this month at the NCAA Baseball Tournament's best two-out-of-three game Super Regional in Gainesville, Florida.

The Florida Gators clinched the victory that sent their team to the College World Series, but they did not and could not crush Demon Deacons' pride. This Wake Forest home-run-hitting team had heart all year and won respect with its 43-20 record. "It was a special group of guys," Coach Tom Walter told Winston-Salem Journal sports writer Dan Collins. "These seniors, they grew up together." Enjoy reading Collins' take on "the season of a lifetime." Congratulations, team! You will be back on that road to Omaha next season.

Enjoy your summer,

Maria Henson
