JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 23, 2009) - The ETSU baseball team is set to host High Point in a three-game non-conference series starting Friday at 7 p.m. at Cardinal Park.

ETSU is led offensively by senior Ben Allen (Kingsport, Tenn.) as he leads the team hitting .359 on the season. The Bucs are 4-2 all-time against High Point and 8-0 this season in non-conference home games.

 

The Panthers (17-20, 9-9 Big South) are 3-3 in their last six games taking two of three last weekend from 18th ranked Coastal Carolina. High Point is led by senior catcher Billy Alvino who leads the Big South in average hitting .429 on the year.
