William Carey eliminated from NAIA World Series

LEWISTON, IDAHO (WDAM) -

Despite an early lead, William Carey University fell to Lewis & Clark State College 12-7 in the semifinals of the 2017 NAIA World Series. 

William Carey quickly took the lead in the bottom of the first inning off three-straight walks followed by a James Land grand slam, his 21st home run of the season. Cody Christian added a solo home run to make it a 5-0 lead for WCU after one inning. 

WCU extended the lead to 6-0 in the second inning off of a sacrifice fly from Tyler Graves, but Lewis and Clark began chipping away at that lead in the bottom half of the second by scoring two runs to make it 6-2.

Lewis and Clark trailed 6-5 going into the sixth inning, but a couple of errors and five hits gave LCSC an 11-6 lead over WCU.

Graves hit a solo home run in the top of the seventh to cut the lead to 12-7, and WCU loaded the bases in the eighth inning but were not able to get a run across.

The loss brought William Carey's season to an end at 45-20.

    Since the EF-3 tornado landed last year, William Carey University has spent the entire year working to rebuild their campus. “The feeling that we couldn't recover was pretty widespread but they didn't know our students, faculty and employees and our determination,” says President Dr. Tommy King. William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."
