CONFERENCE CHAMPS

University of Mount Olive first baseman Vito Patierno, left, tags out Virginia State’s Joshua Tayman on a first-inning pickoff play during a game in early April.

The No. 5-ranked Trojans collected their 16th Conference Carolinas regular-season championship — and first since 2017 — with a four-game sweep of Belmont Abbey this past weekend. UMO (32-8 overall, 27-5 CC) earned the No. 1 seed for the season-ending conference tournament that begins Wednesday at historic Fleming Stadium in Wilson.

The Trojans oppose the winner of King-Emmanuel at 7 p.m. Thursday.
