Working members of the media who plan to cover North Georgia baseball on the road should make credential requests through the sports information office of the host institution. GAME NOTES - A set of game notes regarding North Georgia baseball is generally made available 24 hours before each contest.

2008 PBC TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS


A Tradition Continues

Home to the North Georgia baseball team, Bob Stein Stadium was constructed during the fall of 2008 and features a first-class facility for the Saints. With 500 chair back seats, fans will enjoy a perfect venue for NCAA Baseball. The newly constructed Bob Stein Stadium will house the Saints for the first time in 2009 as it offers players, fans, and media a beautiful facility with the backdrop of the Dahlonega Mountains. Since the original construction of the baseball complex, the dugouts, field, and amenities have undergone changes and upgrades over the past six seasons. In 2005, the maintenance building was built along the left field fence to house grounds crew equipment and team supplies. A new state of the art scoreboard was added prior to the 2008 season to complement the matrix board to give fans statistics and game information.

THE UNIVERSITY

North Georgia College & State University is a coeducational state university emphasizing strong liberal arts, as well as pre-professional, professional, and graduate programs. Serving as a liberal arts university for all of its students and as a military college for its Corps of Cadets, the university is distinct in many ways. As the only four-year public institution in northeast Georgia, NGCSU offers a quality college experience in a beautiful mountain setting, about an hour north of Atlanta. Specializing in leadership training and producing leaders since 1873, the university has been designated by the state as The Leadership Institution of Georgia . For more than 130 years , North Georgia College & State University has been helping students discover remarkable things about themselves and the world. Our graduates gain a solid foundation on which to build their lives --not only a quality education, but cherished memories of great experiences, lifelong friends and good times. The administration, faculty, and staff at North Georgia are dedicated to the education and traditional values which enable students to excel in whatever field they pursue. Classes are small and attention is personalized. Faculty, not graduate teaching assistants, do all of the teaching at North Georgia. Located in Dahlonega, Georgia, a small historic town in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, the university offers more than 50 majors to prepare stu-

8

dents for nearly any career. With more than 4,000 students, North Georgia College & State University is large enough to provide a wide array of opportunities and activities, but small enough to allow personal attention from professors and to foster friendships among students. Nestled in the mountains, the goldrush town of Dahlonega has kept its historic charm and spirit. In this town of fewer than 4,000, students easily walk to nearby restaurants, shops, banks and churches. The campus is safe, clean, and friendly, with the excitement and entertainment of metro Atlanta only a 90-minute drive away. Surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest, North Georgia College & State University is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, with endless places for hiking, mountain climbing, hunting, fishing, birdwatching, whitewater rafting, canoeing and camping. This area of North Georgia draws many visitors who enjoy its lush forests, stunning waterfalls and abundant wildlife.

2008 PBC TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS


A Tradition Continues

The Peach Belt Conference is committed to providing through its dependent collegiate members, a forum for student participation in athletic, academic and co-curricular events under the auspices of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Division II. We will exemplify the characteristics of a premier intercollegiate conference that prides itself on the inclusion of students of all demographic groups who wish to participate in a well-rounded sports program. Our institutions, our academic goals, our athletic aspirations reflect a communality of purpose and a commitment to excellence in the classroom and on the playing field.

HISTORY Since its inception in 1991, the Peach Belt Conference has worked tirelessly to become one of the elite conferences in NCAA Division II. Now entering its 17th season with 24 national championships and 24 national finalists, the PBC has accomplished that goal. Starting with only two championships in 1991, in men’s and women’s basketball, the conference has expanded to 12 champi-

onship sports with the addition of women’s soccer in the fall of 2000. The conference traces its roots back to November of 1988 when 11 schools first met in Greenville, S.C. to form a Division II conference. Following a second meeting on Dec. 3, 1989, five of those 11 schools, plus two others, formed the Peach Belt and begin play in 1991. The Peach Belt was less than a year old before capturing a national championship. The Columbus State golf team took the honor by winning the 1992 national crown, the first of three golf championships the Cougars own. The 2006-07 season continued the tradition of excellence the conference has established. The Columbus State baseball team reached the national championship game and USC Upstate finished just one stroke out of the lead in the golf national championships. The seven charter members of the conference were Armstrong Atlantic State University, Columbus State University, Francis Marion University, Georgia College &

State University, Lander University, USC Aiken and USC Upstate. The name Peach Belt Athletic Conference was adopted in January of 1990 and modified to Peach Belt Conference in May of 2000. Augusta State joined the conference in 1991 and UNC Pembroke became the ninth member on July 1, 1992. They were followed by Kennesaw State University on July 1, 1994, Clayton State University on July 1, 1995 and the University of North Florida on July 1, 1997. Kennesaw State and North Florida departed for the Division I ranks in 2005, USC Upstate did the same in 2007, and the conference welcomed in North Georgia College & State University in 2005 and Georgia Southwestern State University in 2006. David Brunk was named the second PBC commissioner in May of 2007. Brunk replaced Marvin Vanover, who was the first PBC commissioner from 1991 to 2007. Brunk is charged with continuing the strong growth of the conference as its second era begins.

PBC Commissioner David Brunk presents Logan Sharrett with the 2008 Peach Belt Conference Tournament MVP Award following the Saints 10-9 victory over Francis Marion in the championship game.

overview

pitching

Head coach Tom Cantrell returns for his tenth year with a talented mix of pitchers and hitters as the Saints look to return to the NCAA Tournament for their second consecutive season.

Nine pitchers return from last year, including James Wiley and Michael Patton who combined to win 12 games in the starting rotation. Cantrell will look to senior transfer Tyler Musslewhite to jump into the rotation and anchor the rotation. Musslewhite comes to Dahlonega from the University of South Carolina, and Chipola College where he won a national championship in 2007.

Last year, North Georgia finished fourth in the Peach Belt Conference with a record of 41-21 overall and 16-11 in the PBC. Heading into April, the Saints found themselves just two games over the .500 mark at 18-16 overall and two games under in Peach Belt Conference play at 8-10. After returning home from a three-game sweep at the hands of Francis Marion University, North Georgia started a journey that saw them win 23 of their last 26 games to claim the Peach Belt Conference Tournament Championship and a birth in the NCAA South Atlantic Regional. The Saints finished the season ranked 20th in the nation, one of six national rankings during the 2008 season. North Georgia will go up against some of the best teams in the nation in the Peach Belt Conference, a league that is home to three baseball national championships in its history. The Saints will welcome the likes of Columbus State, Francis Marion, and Armstrong Atlantic to Bob Stein Stadium, while hosting Alabama-Huntsville, West Florida, and Valdosta State in non-conference action.

Senior Garrett Lussi will be looked to for leadership in the pen as the right handed pitcher collected three wins last season. Alex Simmons and Jesse Coxwell both saw limited action in the starting rotation last season, but appeared 21 times in relief and combined for five victories and 47 strikeouts in 81.2 innings of work. Senior Garrett Lussi worked in 23 games last season, picking up three wins and posting an ERA of 3.89, while Jacob Rickett assumed the closers role by the end of the season and saved four games. Newcomers Brandon Garcia, Andy Reid, Blake Hobby, and Matt Smith should all add depth and provide valuable innings out of the bullpen.

North Georgia will have plenty of chances to play in their brand new stadium with 37 home games on the schedule this season. The Saints will host four Peach Belt Conference series at home, and hit the road for five three-game series in the league. North Georgia will also travel to Anderson University and West Georgia for single games, while playing a pair at Carson-Newman in Jefferson City, Tennessee. The 2009 team returns five starting position players from last yearʼs squad that outscored opponents 477-349 and hit .303 with 65 home runs and 673 hits. The pitching staff is returning eight pitchers from a year ago that combined for a 2917 record. The Saints had a team ERA of 4.30 last season, and struck out 390 batters while opponants hit .269.

The North Georgia infield returns four of five starters from last year始s team, as Rob Flanigan, the All-American Firstbaseman, is the only vacant position.

The outfield returns a pair of players as Craig Brisson and Davy Wallach look to lead a group of young talented players for the Saints.

Andre Airch will patrol third base for the second consecutive season after being named to the Rawlings/ABCA AllSoutheast Region Gold Glove Team in 2008. Airch hit .339 with five home runs and 43 runs batted in, while stealing 11 bases in 13 attempts.

Brisson, a returning PBC First-Team All-Conference and All-Region selection will make the move to center and patrol the outfield. The junior hit leadoff for the Saints in 2008 with a .356 batting average, eight home runs, 45 runs batted in, while starting all 62 games.

Anders Oster returns for his senior season at shortstop after being named to the Rawlings/ABCA All-Southeast Region Gold Glove Team in 2008. Oster recorded a .963 fielding percentage in 250 attempts, and drove in 34 runs for the Saints.

Wallach played in 32 games last season and had a .944 fielding percentage. The junior hit .238 with 11 runs batted in and stole seven bases in eight attempts.

Daniel Petitti will control the pitching staff from behind home plate as he returns for his third season at catcher. Petitti hit .293 last season with seven home runs, 53 runs batted in, and 42 runs scored. The junior had a fielding percentage of .977, in 62 games.

SEASON PREVIEW

Logan Sharrett begins his second season at second base after being named the PBC Tournament MVP in 2008. Sharrett hit .311 last season with 48 runs scored and 12 doubles in 56 games.

Chad Sage saw action in the outfield and as the designated hitter in 2008 as he hit .291 with eight home runs and 38 runs batted in. The Saints will also expect production from Jordan Erisman and Nicholas Fryman as they begin their collegiate careers and compete for starting positions.

After winning 23 of their last 26 games to end the regular season, the Saints entered their first-ever Peach Belt Conference Tournament as the 4th seed, taking on Francis Marion University in the opening round. After powering past the Patriots 6-2, North Georgia erased a four-run deficit to defeat GCSU 10-9 in extra innings in the second round and set up an epic showdown with rival Columbus State. The Saints found themselves tied 3-3 with the Cougars in the 7th inning, but All-American Rob Flanigan stepped to the plate and hit his second home run of the day that sealed the victory and sent North Georgia into the championship games. After 18 runs were scored in the first six innings of the title game, head coach Tom Cantrell called on junior Zach Black who came in and tossed four innings to pick up the victory and send North Georgia into celebration. “I canʼt say enough about what my players did,” Cantrell said in a post game press conference after the championship game. “These guys have been on a mission since April started, and they showed a lot of fight and never gave up.”
