CWS 2015 has minimal impact on 'Cats roster

With Regionals weekend of the 2015 College World Series in the books, the HarbourCat roster has mostly become unburdened by the remainder of the tournament... Last week I reported six HarbourCats going forward into the tourney - a couple with a pretty good shot at moving forward, but thanks to a couple of upsets and some underdog wins, all but one have ended their college year and will not move on.

Henry Omana, still in the hunt...
Henry Omana's Cal State Fullerton squad emerged out of their regional with a perfect 3-0 record, including two wins over Nick Wojitysiak and Chase Lambert's Pepperdine squad, who finished second at 2-2. Oregon State had a tough tourney as well, going 1-2 and bowing out early, despite a win Friday that featured a clutch RBI by Michael Gretler. After that dramatic win, Gretler and Gabe Clark were sent packing with two straight losses.

In the most surprising upset of the tourney so far, UCLA was ousted in a two-game final by Maryland, ending the college season for Scott Jarvis.

While not a great feeling to be eliminated this early, it's great news for Victoria fans, as we will have the majority of our signed roster here much sooner than we did last year. We will miss Omana's closer talents for sure, but it will be nice to start the year with mostly full-time players.

Good luck to Henry Omana as he moves forward to next weekend's Super Regional in Louisville KY!
