Diamond Dogs to Cross Continent to Compete in Corvallis Regional

Despite being described as "the most bubbly of the teams that went to Hoover," the Diamond Dogs rode their top-ranked strength of schedule, No. 16 RPI, and back-to-back wins over top three teams in the SEC Tournament to a spot in the NCAA field of 64.

Georgia will compete with opening game opponent Creighton, Arkansas-Little Rock, and host Oregon State as the No. 3 seed in the Corvallis Regional. The Classic City Canines have gone 46-28 all-time in the NCAA Tournament, including a 26-12 record in nine NCAA Regional appearances. Head coach David Perno has had a hand in five of the Red and Black’s six regional championships, as a player (on the 1990 College World Series championship team), an assistant coach (in 2001), and a head coach (in 2004, 2006, and 2008).

Since taking over the program for his alma mater’s oldest varsity sport, Coach Perno has guided his clubs to a 14-7 ledger and three titles in five NCAA Regionals. Under Coach Perno, the Diamond Dogs have never missed the NCAA postseason field in consecutive seasons.

The winner of the Corvallis Regional will advance to face the winner of the Nashville Regional, which is hosted by Vanderbilt.
