WTAMU set to host 2018 Lone Star Conference Baseball Championship

For the second time in school history and first since 2013, the West Texas A&M baseball team will host the 2018 Lone Star Conference Baseball Championship at Wilder Park, May 10-12.  The Buffs won their first outright LSC regular season title with a 3-1 series win at Angelo State this weekend to earn the right to host the championship.

The Buffs, ranked sixth nationally, finished the regular season with a school-record 38-11 mark overall and 20-4 in LSC play winning the regular season title by two games over Tarleton State.  The single-elimination tournament begins on Thursday and concludes Saturday.

Following WT and Tarleton State, Texas A&M-Kingsville is the No. 3-seed, followed by Angelo State, Eastern New Mexico and UT Permian Basin.  WT last hosted the LSC Baseball Championship in 2013 for the LSC Spring Festival where WT was host for baseball, softball and outdoor men's and women's track and field all at the Buffalo Sports Complex over the same weekend.

Tournament play will begin on Thursday, May 10, with two games at 3 and 7 p.m.  The top two seeds receive a first-round bye and will face Thursday's winners on May 11.  The tournament championship will be decided on Saturday, May 12, at 3 p.m.
