TULSA, Okla. – For the 17th straight time as members of the Mid-Con/Summit League, the Oral Roberts baseball team swept both the regular season and tournament titles this season, coming in number eight in the #TopORUMoments countdown for 2016-17.
The Golden Eagles were nothing short of dominant in Summit League play, clinching the regular season title with five games to play. ORU finished the season with a 25-4 league record and went on to win three straight games in the Summit League Tournament to earn the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The team dominance was further on display as the end of the year awards were announced. ORU swept all four major awards (Player of the Year, Pitcher of the Year, Newcomer of the Year and Coach of the Year) and had an incredible 13 All-League selections—10 of whom were named to the first team.
This is the eighth of 15 editions of the #TopORUMoments from 2016-17 as selected by the ORU Media Relations Department and a social media poll.
