NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The Norfolk State University baseball team’s MEAC tournament magic ended at the hands of the only team to beat the Spartans in the early rounds. Bethune-Cookman handed Norfolk State a 4-2 loss to win the MEAC Tournament championship on Monday morning.
The best chance for the Spartans came in the top of the fifth inning. Trailing 4-2, NSU loaded the bases with nobody out. Not a single run crossed the plate.
NSU fended off elimination three times before facing off with Bethune-Cookman on the final day of the tournament. A Spartan win would have forced a winner-take-all game two for the title.
