Currently ranked No. 5 in the NCAA Southeast Region poll, Coker (34-14) earned an automatic bid to the southeast region tournament by winning the 2013 Conference Carolinas Baseball Tournament on Apr. 28.
The southeast region tournament will be a six-team double elimination tournament. The tournament is made up of three automatic bids from the three conference tournament winners from Conference Carolinas, the South Atlantic Conference and the Peach Belt Conference, and three at-large bids.
