Urban Invitational–Sunday Results–March 02, 2008

Southern vs Bethune-Cookman
Things got started Sunday afternoon when Bethune-Cookman University bounced back from a tough loss to UCLA the night before with a big 10-4 win over Southern University in the meeting of the two HBCU teams. Big rallies in the fourth and seventh innings helped the Wildcats put Southern away. Here is a picture of the team:


We had a lot of fun this weekend. We are all tired, but the Urban Invitational turned out extremely well. The UYA Staff worked very hard to make this happen.

Thank you everyone! Z.
