Des Plaines, Illinois – A nice post-season run with great comebacks and tight games came to a disappointing ending on Sunday as Delta dropped a 25-1 decision to defending national champion Oakton Community College in the final game of the best-of-three Super Regional. The Pioneers finish the season with a 29-26-1 overall record while Oakton improves to 41-16.
The Owls scored six runs in the first inning and four runs in the second to take an overwhelming 10-0 lead. They were assisted with five walks, one error and a hit batter.
Oakton advances to the College World Series for the second season in a row where they will face off with second ranked Herkimer County Community College (35-4) from upstate New York. The Owls will be five seed in the eight team, double-elimination series.
