Posted On: 5/21/2013 3:16 PM

The tournament is scheduled for May 1-3 at the historic Riverside Stadium in Victoria, Texas and will be hosted by the UHV Jaguars.  The winner of the tournament will earn an automatic berth to the NAIA Nationals Opening Round Tournament on May 10-14 at sites still to be determined. The Avista-NAIA World Series will be held May 24-31 in Lewiston, Idaho and will be hosted by Lewis-Clark State College. The seedings for the tournament will be announced the week before the tournament. The Falcons currently sit third in the standings. This will mark Fisher's tenth consecutive postseason appearance.

With a record of 23-12 so far on the season, the Falcons are just 7 wins away of surpassing 300 wins in history. Head Coach Scott Dulin, who has been at the helm since the program's inception has 293 career wins and 288 since arriving at Fisher College. “I am proud of the work our guys have put in so far this season.  I am excited to get to Texas and compete against some of the best talent in the nation.  It should be a competitive tournament but I think we will be prepared for the challenge,” said Dulin.This announcement comes on the heels of yet another win last night (3-0) for the Fisher Falcons against Framingham State.  Fisher’s Christopher O'Hare (Lynnfield, MA) struck out nine in a rain shortened five inning game that gave the Fisher Falcons their 13th straight win and improved their home record to 12-0. Victor Lebron (Union City, NJ) paced the Falcons offense, going 2-for-3 on the night.

Fisher got the scoring started in the 1st inning when Anthony Peguero (Boston, MA) had a one out single up the middle. A Victor Lebron single moved Peguero into scoring position before a double steal allowed Peguero to score when the catcher's throw ended up in left field. The Falcons added a second run in the inning when Joshua Boyd (West Chester, NY) and Lebron completed a double steal of their own that allowed Lebron to take home. The Falcons added their third and final run in the 5th inning when Eridani Dume (Boston, MA) led off with a single then stole second easily. A failed pickoff attempt resulted in Dume advancing the third before Anthony Peguero's sacrifice fly plated Fisher’s insurance run.
