Hoosiers enter College World Series for the first time after win

The Indiana Hoosiers are going to the College World Series for the first time, after their 11-6 win against the Florida State Seminoles on Sunday.

According to Associated Press, this was Indiana’s third appearance in the NCAA tournament and their first super regional appearance, and this time, they fought through.

Hoosiers pitcher Will Coursen-Carr was on the mound for four innings and only gave up one earned run, while Seminoles pitcher Scott Sitz gave Indiana seven runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Despite the three runs scored in the top of the fifth, Florida State fell to the Hoosiers after Indiana’s Sam Travis hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth, and it gave the Hoosiers the lead.

“Winning the Super Regional on the same weekend that our standout high jumper Derek Drouin won his fifth national title adds an exclamation point to what has been one of the finest years for IU Athletics in recent memory,” Indiana President Michael McRobbie said in a statement, reports Big Ten Network.

McRobbie ended his statement and said, “But, as coach Tracy Smith would say, there’s more work to be done starting next weekend in Omaha. I, and IU fans everywhere, will be rooting on the Hoosiers as they swing for a national championship.”
