With a 5-2 win over Stephen F. Austin University on Tuesday, the #1 seed Kennesaw State Owls won the National Club Baseball Association World Series at Brooks Stadium in Paducah, Kentucky.

This is the first National Championship for Kennesaw State University. The Owls defeated the University of Wyoming and the University of Maryland en route to the championship game.

“Paducah's Brooks Stadium pairs well with collegiate baseball tournaments,” said Paducah Convention & Visitors Bureau Sales Director Fowler Black. “Not only does Paducah provide a neutral site for competition, but it's geographically centered. NCBA's World Series teams came from Boston to Wyoming and Wisconsin to Texas.”

The National Club Baseball Association is a division of the Collegiate Club Sports League. Eight collegiate baseball teams won their respective NCBA districts to earn a spot in the tournament at Brooks Stadium, May 17-21.
