The Augustana Baseball team had its fair share of ups and downs this season, but the good news is that the last few weeks have been nothing short of sensational for the Vikings.

Coach Tim Huber and Augustana hosted Minnesota State for the best of three-game Super Regional last weekend in Sioux Falls and walked away with a punched ticket to the DII College World Series.

The event which is held annually in Cary, North Carolina will run this season from June 3rd through the 10th.

Augustana, who enters their second-ever DII College World Series, comes in with a record of 47-19 and has earned the #7 seed.

First pitch for the game will be at 5:00 Central on Sunday. Here is a look at the complete bracket:

Augustana won their first DII National Championship for baseball back in 2018 when Coach Tim Huber guided the Vikings to a 52-9 finish and the title in Cary.

That season, Augie blitzed their way through the tournament with wins over Southern New Hampshire (twice), Florida Southern, and Columbus State in the title game.

We'll see just how hot this Augie Baseball team can stay after what has been an amazing run this postseason. In all, Augustana has won 8 of their last 11 games dating back to the start of postseason play in the NSIC Tournament.

You can hear from Augustana Baseball Coach Tim Huber on this week's edition of Overtime with Bert Remien on Friday at 11:40 am.

Ten Most Disappointing Minnesota Sports Seasons

The 2021 Minnesota Twins entered the season with high expectations, but unfortunately, they've made the list of most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment is a common feeling for Minnesota sports fans as the years continue. Following the NBA Championship win for Milwaukee, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota has the current longest streak of seasons without a championship appearance in the four major sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also chimed in on the stat after claiming four championships since 2011.

The ten teams that are on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one that featured a strong core of players that appeared to have taken the next step. Offseason/preseason expectations were high with even Las Vegas oddsmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the following teams. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
