WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Home and road dates with reigning College World Series champion Coastal Carolina and a trip to Ole Miss are among the highlights of UNCW's 2017 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday.
The Seahawks will play 13 games against teams that reached the NCAA regionals last season, including home-and-home series with Coastal Carolina, East Carolina and NC State.
"We have a great fan base, one that is passionate about their Seahawks and college baseball," UNCW coach Mark Scalf said. "I feel this will be another exciting schedule for them to come out and support us."
The season kicks off on Feb. 17 when the Seahawks host George Mason.
CAA play begins March 24 with a three-game series at home against defending league champ William & Mary.
"Putting together a challenging schedule is a priority for our program," said Scalf. "Every weekend series and mid-week game is one that will help us get better for the following week."
