MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. -- The Georgia College Bobcats left John Kurtz Field this afternoon to head for Mount Olive, S.C. for their NCAA regional. The Bobcats are the sixth seed in the regional, but they are heading north with one thing on their mind, another shot at the College World Series.

"Our last world series was 2010," said shortstop Brandon Benson. "I think so it would be awesome to get back there. Just reaching our goals, our season goals."

The Bobcats reached the College World Series four times in program history; 1983, 1984, 1995 and 2010.

"It seems like we did it in the 80s, we did it in the 90s and we did it in 2010 so we're kind of due to go back," said head coach Jason Eller.

The stage is set for a big weekend, and the pressure of the moment doesn't seem to be getting to Georgia College.

"I think if we get this first win it's going to set the tone and let all the players relax a little bit the pressure will be released," said pitcher Brady Walsh. "I think we just need to go out and have fun and keep playing the way we're playing and we could go all the way."

Six-seeded Georgia College and three-seeded USC Aiken get their tournaments started on Thursday.
