2009 Season - Vikings head into CCIW tourney as No. 4 seed

After gaining a spilt in the final double header of the 2009 season on Saturday, May 2, the Augustana Vikings will head into the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin tournament this weekend as the number four seed. Veteran head coach Greg Wallace’s team is currently 23-15 overall and 10-10 in the CCIW, which was good enough for fourth place and the final qualifying spot in the tournament. Carthage won the CCIW with an 18-1 mark and the Red Men will be the top seed. Augustana and Carthage will square off at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 7 in the second of two games on the first day. Preceding the Vikings and the Red Men will be a battle between second seeded Illinois Wesleyan (23-13 and 14-7) and third seeded Wheaton (21-17 and 13-7). That game will start at 12:00 noon.
