WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - There's something to be proud of this week and I want to make sure you take note.

The University of North Carolina Wilmington Seahawks baseball team is heading back to the NCAA Championship Tournament for the first time since 2008.

I've had the good fortune this year to watch this team play - and what a great season they've had.

• They captured the Colonial Athletic Association regular season conference crown with an amazing 24 league wins and only six losses.

• Head Coach Mark Scalf was named CAA Coach-of-the-Year.

• They had 11 players receive All-CAA Honors, including three on the All-Conference First Team.

• And best of all…..they won the CAA Tournament Championship on Saturday and a spot in the NCAA tournament this weekend.

We have a great chance to show our support for the Seahawks. Fortunately they are playing close to home just up the road in Raleigh. They'll take on Vanderbilt in the opening game on Friday afternoon. In two short hours you can be in your seat and ready for some great college baseball. Let's do our best to make this a home crowd for the Seahawks.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment, or anything else, email me at yourturn@wect.com.
