MADISON, Wis. --
The final Lake Michigan Conference event will take place this weekend at the 2006 LMC Baseball Tournament. The top four LMC baseball teams will compete in the double-elimination tournament hosted by Lakeland College at Wildwood Park in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

The four teams competing include Edgewood College (28-12, 17-4 LMC), Marian College (21-17, 14-7), Concordia University (22-17, 14-7) and Dominican University (19-19, 13-8). The tournament champion receives the LMC's automatic berth to the NCAA Division III Baseball Championship.

Top-seeded Edgewood will square off versus No. 4 Dominican, while No. 2 Marian will take on No. 3 Concordia. Both games are scheduled for a 10am first-pitch on Friday, with the Edgewood vs. Dominican game taking place at Wildwood Park, and the Marian vs. Concordia game taking place at Muskie Park on the Lakeland campus. All remaining games will be played at Wildwood Park.

The Eagles of Edgewood College enter the event as defending tournament champions, and also won the last two regular season crowns. The Eagles recorded a 7-2 record versus the tournament teams, losing once apiece to Marian and Dominican. The Eagles look to return to the NCAA Division III Championship, in witch they were runners-up at the 2005 Illinois Wesleyan Regional.

The Marian College Sabres look win their first tournament tile since 2000, and ninth tournament title overall. Marian went 4-5 versus the other three tournament teams, winning only one series, 2-1, over Concordia. The series win was good enough to give them the tie-breaker over the Falcons for the No. 2 seed, which in turn gives them the 'home team' honor in the game against the Falcons.

Concordia won the tournament championship in 2004, their only conference tournament championship in Falcon baseball history. The Falcons recorded a 3-6 record versus the tournament teams this season, which includes a 2-1 series win over Dominican. Their current 22 wins is a best in recent program history.

The Dominican Stars claimed the last spot in the tourney with a 13-8 conference record, two games better than fifth place Lakeland (11-10 LMC). The Stars compiled a 4-5 record versus the top three teams, winning the series over Marian, 2-1.

The four teams are the top four conference teams in both batting and pitching in overall games, and nearly the same in conference-only contests (Dominican 5th in pitching). The stats foreshadow an exciting tournament to be played in the LMC finale.

The tournament's first five games will be played on Friday (10am, 2pm, 5pm, 8pm), while the remaining sixth, and possibly seventh will take place on Saturday. All game times are approximate, pending completion of prior games. Tickets for the tournament will be available at the gate.
