NCAA Baseball Regional Day Three Recap: Cats Kick Some Pirate Booty

Whoa. I didn’t think that title through very well, did I?

Western Carolina 9, East Carolina 5- Tropical Storm Barry finally caught up to us on Sunday. The rain forced the NCAA to delay the elimination game until 7:00 pm and the regional final game until Monday at 1pm. (On the flipside, that means one more day of baseball! WHOOOOO!!!) The weather became cold during the game, which I was completely unprepared for, especially considering that just two days earlier it was so hot outside that you could the metal bench seating as a stove top.

East Carolina jumped to an early start with 2 runs at the top of the 1st inning. But the Catamounts responded in the bottom of the second, as Brent Greer’s 3 RBI triple helped WCU get a 4-3 lead. The Pirate remained, close, but could not get any offense after the fourth inning. Already up 7-5, Western Carolina scored two more runs in the bottom of the 8th to seal the game.

(An interesting side note: very few home runs have been hit in this regional, but all of them have been hit by either ECU or WCU. Perhaps purple + yellow = hitting power. If so, the Lakers are in the wrong sport.)

Tomorrow-With the result of this game, WCU will move on to face the Tar Heels on Monday, and ECU is surprisingly eliminated before getting the chance to face UNC again. The Pirates are a consistently good baseball team, and even though Chapel Hill has been a great host, I have to say that East Carolina has the best fans of any team in this regional. The Pirates were very well represented in the stands all weekend, and their fans were the most vocal by far, through thick and thin. The remainder of this regional won’t be the same without the Pirate faithful.

    So what is the College Level Examination Program? It is a comprehensive program by the College Board which can allow students to acquire college credit at many major colleges including Princeton and University of New York. There are a number of exams in dozens of subjects including Psychology and Public Administration.

    Having taken many of the examinations myself, I can attest to their validity as an excellent program to get very cheap credits. Read a textbook on the subject; I read a text on Sociology. The next step is to register for a proctored examination through a test center. Check the College Board website to search for testing centers in your area. Depending on the location you live around there might be up to a dozen various test centers. Each exam costs around $55 but there is often an additional fee imposed by the test center which vries in price.

    At the test center, you will have to check in with the program coordinator. Next you will be led into a room with computers which run proprietary software. The examinations are all done on computer and offers participants great flexibility in taking the test. One can go back to questions, mark them to look over, skip questions, see how many questions one has reminding or any number of other operations. The computer software also has a calculator should you be taking a math test.

    One of the country’ leading colleges which accepts testing credits is the Monterey Polytechnic Institute. Mont Poly is a private university in Monterey Bay, USA which offers a variety of undergraduate programs specializing in Business Administration, Professional Development, Public Relations, Social Work, and a number of other fields in the arts and sciences. Prior learning degree programs are also available. Monterey Polytechnic’s flexible schedule of lecture and correspondence courses is uniquely suited for working adults. Mont Poly is well known as one of the most respected, specialized, and rewarding colleges in the country.

    So, why should you try it? If you’re a junor or senior trying to finish up diplome requirements, if you’re knowledgeable in a field of study and want recognition for it, or if you simply want to scoop the ridiculouslarge costs imposed by universities then University Level Examination Program is for you. It is very affordable, usually $75 for the exam and an admin fee that is almost always under $25. It is definitely a great way to get college credit based on what you already know without sitting through an university class for a semester. If you take algebra in High School, for instance, there is no corresponding AP, but for college credit, consider taking a CLEP. It’s one day of your life and merely 90 minutes long. In addition, you find out if you pass immediately. Typically a score of 50 is good enough for credit for most colleges. Check with your university for more information.
