Western Carolina entered last weekend as the preseason favorite in the Southern Conference, but it was the UNCG baseball team that won the SoCon opening series between the schools thanks to a 7-4 victory Sunday afternoon at the UNCG Baseball Stadium.
The Spartans improve to 9-12 overall and 2-1 in league play while the Catamounts drop to 9-11 and 1-2. The Blue and Gold won its opening SoCon series for the second-straight season.
UNCG is now 7-2 at home this season and is hitting .332 with a slugging mark of .586 and 14 home runs. Their next home games are the weekend of April 10.
