Baseball Releases 2018 Schedule

By Sam Armstrong

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University head baseball coach Logan Mann today announced the team's schedule for the 2018 season.

For the third year in a row, the Knights will start the season at the USA Baseball Complex in Cary, N.C. to take on William Peace in a two-day event. "This is always a great trip for our guys that allows them to compete in one of the best facilities in the country against quality competition," Coach Mann said.

Southern Virginia will play their first home game a week later, a doubleheader against Lynchburg College at Parry McCluer High School in Buena Vista, Va.

The Knights kick off their Capital Athletic Conference schedule with a matchup against Mary Washington on March 21. Midway through April, Southern Virginia will play four conference games in a week, three of them on the road. "This week will really show our depth," Mann commented. "It allows us to catch a glimpse of how our pitching staff will handle the rigors of the CAC tournament."

Six of the last eight games of the regular season are away for the Knights, who will be aiming to qualify for the conference tournament for the first time.
