Team of the Week
Stetson named CBI Team of the Week
Stetson, picked to finish fifth the Atlantic Sun by the head
coaches, swept a three-game series from Georgia of the SEC. The Hatters get a
tip of our cap as the initial 2011 CollegeBaseballInsider.com Team of the Week.
Stetson began the weekend with a 6-3 win over the Bulldogs on
Friday, as Lindsey Caughel (right) started on the mound. The Hatters followed that with a 7-2
triumph on Saturday and completed
the sweep with an 8-4 decision on Sunday.
