It will be a couple of weeks before Georgia Southern plays another Southern Conference series, but there's not time to rest.
If you followed Georgia Southern at all last week, chances are you saw something crazy.
Victor Roache (Ypsilanti, Mich.) came up big again hitting two more home runs to spark Georgia Southern (18-11, 9-3) to a come-from-behind 11-9 win and a series sweep of The Citadel (10-18, 5-10) on Sunday, April 3rd. Roache launched his sixth home run of the week just a day after sending three over the wall and moved into second place in the NCAA rankings with 12, closely trailing behind Jake Lowery of James Madison.
Jerick McKinnon had a busy morning on Saturday.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Georgia Southern Baseball team (15-11) scored a run in the ninth inning, but left the bases loaded in a 4-2 loss to Jacksonville Tuesday, March 29th at Sessions Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla. A single bad inning cost the Eagles and dropped Justin Hess (Panama City, Fla.) to 0-2 on the season. The Dolphins scored three runs in the fourth inning on four consecutive hits to take an early 3-0 lead.
Georgia Southern's defensive line had plenty of star power in 2010.
CHARLESTON, S.C. - Georgia Southern (15-10, 6-3) jumped out to an early 3-1 after the third inning and added four insurance runs in the eighth inning to earn its first road series win against the College of Charleston (16-9, 3-3) since the 2001 season. The win also marked the 500th career victory for Head Baseball Coach Rodney Hennon. Hennon earned 419 of those wins at GSU and picked up the first 81 at his alma mater, Western Carolina.
Did you notice anything different in the air when you woke up Tuesday morning? Was there a sense of newness, wonder and anticipation that wasn't present on Monday?
It's been long anticipated, but as of today, Georgia Southern is officially an all-sports member of the Sun Belt Conference.
