U.T. Tyler Sweeps, Clinches Conference Championship

Saturday afternoon, the U.T. Tyler Patriots finished a three-game sweep of LeTourneau University 12-5, and 16-2.

With the sweep, the Patriots clinch the top record in the American Southeast Conference East division in just their second year of existence. They finish conference play at 16-5, 30-7 overall.

However, since the Patriots are still a start-up program, they are ineligible for the playoffs. They will finish the season next weekend with a three-game homestand against Rogers State University.
