Same for sophomore Taggart Lunceford.

At a glance

What they’re saying about SUU baseball

Senior Bo Cuthbertson » “There’s no place like this. It’s always windy — always crazy. Crazy things happen all the time. Lots of runs. Exciting games. It’s been fun to play here because you never know what’s going to happen.”

Sophomore Jesse Bristow » “SUU gave a kid like me — someone from a small high school in Utah — the chance to walk on and play at a four-year in-state school. It’s something that’s not available everywhere you go.”

Senior Marcus Romero » “Of course we’re sad. Everyone is very sad. But it’s my last year and I don’t have to go out and look for another school. I feel really bad for the underclassmen. It’s been rough on them.”

Summit League Tournament

Southern Utah’s season isn’t over yet. As one of the top four teams in the Summit League, the Thunderbirds have qualified for the conference tournament, which begins Thursday at Johnson Stadium in Tulsa, Okla. The pairings:

» SUU (12-11, 18-34) is the No. 4 seed and will play No. 1 seed Oral Roberts (17-6, 33-22)

» No. 2 Oakland (15-6, 23-29) and No. 3 North Dakota State (14-10, 38-18) play in the other game.
