The TFC Eagles defeated hosts Florida Christian 4 – 2  in extra innings to capture their second consecutive region banner. Earlier in the day, Florida Christian had eliminated Clearwater Christian to advance to the championship round, 5 – 0. With TFC advancing through the winners bracket, the Eagles needed to win one more game to claim the south region championship while the Suns would have had to claim two victories to upset the Eagles.

Pitcher Dylan Charles, second baseman Josh Ward, and third baseman Corey Warner were named to the All Conference team for the Eagles. Justin Key was named region Pitcher of the Year, designated hitter Zack Warner was tabbed as region Player of the Year, and Coach Justin Pollock was named region Coach of the Year.

With the region championship, TFC earned a return trip to the NCCAA Division II national tournament at Prasco Park in Mason, Ohio. The tournament will be held on May 8 – 11. TFC has won three of the last four national tournaments and will go to Ohio looking for their third consecutive national title.
