The Millersville baseball team, with the help of State College’s Kyle Peterson, saw its season end in the NCAA Division II National Championship Series as the Marauders fell 8-6 to Nova Southeastern on Saturday.
Nova Southeastern took the first two games of the best-of-three championship series, winning 2-1 on Friday, to earn the title as Millersville finished with a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference record 53 wins.
Peterson did not play in any of the Marauders’ five games in the championship tournament in Cary, N.C. The freshman posted a 5-0 record in 11 appearances this season, notching a 3.42 ERA with 20 hits, 12 runs, 10 earned, 20 strikeouts and 14 walks over 26 1/3 innings.
Chelsey Poorman (Bellefonte, Lycoming) was named to the Middle Atlantic Conference Spring Sportsmanship Team. Poorman, who graduated last month, started 36 games this past season with a .282 average, collecting 22 hits, 15 runs, nine RBIs, three doubles and two triples.
