Over the weekend, on Saturday, my son's D2 team clinched their regular season conference title . It was their 17th straight win. Pretty big accomplishment. His team has been to the College World Series 7 times winning it once and this is only the 3rd time they have won their conference regular season title and their first since 2008. Unfortunately, they had a big celebration party that night and their 17 game win streak was snapped in a 10-9 loss on Sunday. They still wound up with a 39-11 overall record, 23-7 in the conference.
Son has not had the best of seasons, but has been an integral part of this team for 4 years. Being on a winning team is definitely more fun than if they were losing. Over his 4 years there, the team has won 144 games so far. Not too bad.
Senior day was Sunday and there were a few tears, but not as many as there could have been since we still have the post season to look forward to. Conference tournament starts next week and it's a pretty good bet his team will make the regionals.
Still hard to believe that his journey is coming to an end. As has been stated here MANY times, enjoy every minute, it will be over before you know it.
