Night Hawks look to thrive in new home

THOMASVILLE — The Thomas University baseball team has a new home this season.

How the Night Hawks respond in the Sun Conference remains to be seen.

TU, which begins its season this weekend with a three-game series against Montreat College at Varneode Stadium, won’t begin conference play until Feb. 8-9 when Florida Memorial University comes to town.

“We get seven games prior to opening the conference,” TU coach Mike Lee said. “Hopefully, in those seven games, we can figure something out.”

Following this weekend’s series with Montreat College, TU will host doubleheaders against St. Catharine’s College on Feb. 1-2. Then the real season begins.

“It's going to be interesting,” Lee said. “You finish up the year and you've got four teams in the top 25. Embry Riddle's in the top 5 and another couple in between (the top) 12 and 20. It's tough. We've never done it. I've never done it as a coach. We play every single weekend from the end of January through the next to last weekend in April. Once we get to the second week in February, everything counts. There's no, this game doesn't really matter or we can save it for this game, everything matters. I'm interested to see how we do.

“It's going to be a little bit different mindset. The weekend's are important. The week is important but not as important as the weekend. It's going to take a little bit different strategy and things like that trying to win a game so you can be ready for the weekend. We're looking forward to it.”
