INDIANAPOLIS – Shenandoah University is headed to the York (Pa.) Regional for the 2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament in selections announced Monday morning by the NCAA.

Shenandoah, 36-8, is the No. 2 seed at the regional and opens play Thursday night at 7:45 p.m. versus seventh-seeded Maritime (N.Y.).

The Middle Atlantic Conferences (Freedom and Commonwealth) are hosting the eight-team regional along with the York Revolution and Sport York at PeoplesBank Park in York, Pennsylvania.

The MAC will offer live stats and video during the tournament.

Shenandoah, making its eighth NCAA Tournament appearance in the past nine years, made the field as a Pool C (at-large) participant.

Top-seeded Johns Hopkins, No. 3 Wheaton (Mass.), No. 4 RIT, No. 5 Alvernia, No. 6 Elizabethtown and No. 8 Lesley (Mass.) round out the eight-team regional.
