Coach Eric Burkle’s baseball team posted its first winning season since 1998, set a school record with 23 conference wins and earned its second straight trip to the conference tournament.
Coach Lynn Ullom’s Lady Hilltoppers came on strong down the stretch to earn runner-up laurels in their first season of Mountain East Conference competition and picked up yet another NCAA Division II Tournament bid. It was the 16th 20-win season for the perennial Atlantic Region power and the 12th NCAA Tournament trip of the Ullom Era.
It was an historic year for Toppernation as the four-time defending Atlantic Region champion Hilltoppers advanced all the way to the NCAA Division II national championship game in Evansville, Ind. Head coach Jim Crutchfield and his powerhouse men’s basketball program are the cover story in the May-June edition of Winning Hoops national coaching magazine after winning eight of the last nine national scoring titles and averaging more than 100 points a game for Crutchfield’s entire coaching career!
