EUGENE, OR --
One year ago the SDSU baseball team won 17 games and finished 15 games under .500. This past week they came within a run of advancing in the NCAA Tournament.
The Jacks season ended on Saturday when they lost in 13 innings to San Francisco 4-3. This coming just less than 24 hours after falling to host and 8th ranked Oregon 3-2.
Despite the end, It's a season that will long be remembered for it's "firsts".
Anchored by eight seniors, SDSU won first Summit League Tournament title by winning four straight elimination games, advancing to their first NCAA Tournament in the division one era, and finishing 35-24.
"Feel bad, when the season always ends it's always a tough day. It's a tough day for everybody. Really the eight guys did a great job of leading our team this year and they should be very proud of what they accomplished." SDSU Manager Dave Schrage says.
SDSU should have even more to celebrate this week.
Major League Baseball's draft begins on Thursday. Yankton native Layne Somsen has been scouted all season and his seven inning, one-hit performance against Oregon probably ensured that he'll be drafted.
Daniel Telford could also hear his name called.
