King given schedule for NCCAA Division I World Series

The Tornado, the winner of the Mid-East region, has been put in Pool B with four other teams. King opens the event Wednesday at 9 a.m. against The Master's (Calif.) College, the No. 7 seed from the West region. The Tornado plays right after that against No. 2 seed Judson (Ill.) University at 11:45 a.m. All of Pool B's games on Wednesday will be played at Legacy Field.

On Thursday Pool B moves to Prasco Park and King plays the 7:30 p.m. contest against No. 3 seed Mount Vernon Nazarene (Ohio) University.

King closes out pool play Friday back at Legacy Field with a 1 p.m. contest versus defending national champion North Greenville (S.C.) University, the No. 6 seed.

Pool A has top-seed Southeastern (Fla.) University, No. 4 Cedarville (Ohio) University, No. 5 Malone (Ohio) University, No. 8 Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) University and No. 9 Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

The pool winners face off at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the first game of the championship series with games two and the if necessary game on Saturday.

At last year's event King went 1-2. The Tornado started with a 12-inning setback against Indiana Wesleyan University 9-7. King bounced back to defeat Judson 11-1 before Colorado Christian eliminated King 9-2.

King is one of six teams to make a return trip to Mason for the postseason event. North Greenville defeated Bluefield (Va.) College 7-6 in 10 innings for last year's championship. Southeastern finished third with Olivet Nazarene fourth. Mount Vernon Nazarene, Cedarville and Oklahoma Wesleyan returns to the championship for the first time since 2009.
