WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– The temperature outside may not feel like baseball weather, but don’t tell UNCW that. The Diamond Hawks are set to open up their 2020 season at home on Friday afternoon.
There will be three teams in Wilmington this weekend for the Seahawk Classic. UNCW will be joined by Dayton and Bryant. The Seahawks have never played either team in program history.
The first game of the season for UNCW is set for 4:00 p.m. against the Dayton Flyers as they begin their quest to repeat as CAA tournament champions. The Seahawks say they are ready to work out some of the early season kinks and finally have the chance to play someone else.
“We will finally be able to put a lineup together because right now were in split scrimmages and you only get to see half your team,”said UNCW head coach Randy Hood. “I am ready to put nine guys out there and start rolling with our team against somebody else.”
The full schedule for the 2020 Seahawk Classic can be found on the UNCW baseball website.
