(Monarchs to face top-seeded Keystone at W&J)

WILKES-BARRE -- The King's College baseball team has been selected to participate in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Southern Region Tournament slated for Friday at Washington & Jefferson College, Washington, Pa.

King's (24-14), which has set a school record for single-season wins, is seeded fourth in the field of four teams and will face top-seeded Keystone (30-11) in the first game Friday at 9:00 a.m.

The other first-round pairing between second-seeded host Washington & Jefferson (31-14) and third-seeded Penn State Behrend (27-16) is set for 12:00 noon.

The two winners will then play at 3:00 p.m. for the ECAC Southern Region title.

The Monarchs, under the direction of third-year coach Jerry Greeley, finished in second-place in the Freedom Conference regular-season standings and were third in the Freedom Conference Tournament.

Washington & Jefferson narrowly missed an NCAA tournament berth after finishing in second place in the President's Athletic Conference Tournament after falling to Westminster College by a 5-3 count.

Penn State Behrend dropped a 9-4 decision to Pitt-Bradford in the championship game of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference to also miss out on an NCAA national tournament berth.
