MILLEDGEVILLE, GA -- Jason Eller has done about as good of a job as anyone in his first season at Georgia College.

The first-year Bobcats head coach has the green machine sitting pretty at 31-13 with the #3 seed in the upcoming Peach Belt Conference Baseball Tournament.

Even though Georgia College is taking the week off from games for finals, the green and white are still focused on their first round opponent Flagler.

"They're really coached up on the mound," Eller said. "They got a left-hander who's number one. We'll probably see him in the opening round. They're tough to beat."

The Saints swept the season series from the Bobcats earlier this year with all three game decided by a total of five runs. Since that point, the Bobcats have been on a terror finishing 16-8 in league play while going 21-3 at home. Eller hopes it will be a different turnout this time around when Tournament play begins at Francis Marion University.

"It's nice to play them on a neutral field," Eller said. "We watched the film the other day. We're a completely different team. I'm excited about trying to get into the winners bracket."

The Bobcats will meet Flagler Wednesday May 10 at 10:00 a.m. in South Carolina.
