INDIANAPOLIS – Shenandoah University is headed to the York (Pa.) Regional for the 2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament in selections announced Monday morning by the NCAA.

Shenandoah, 36-8, is the No. 2 seed at the regional and opens play Thursday night at 7:45 p.m. versus seventh-seeded Maritime (N.Y.).

The Middle Atlantic Conferences (Freedom and Commonwealth) are hosting the eight-team regional along with the York Revolution and Sport York at PeoplesBank Park in York, Pennsylvania.

The MAC will offer live stats and video during the tournament.

Top-seeded Johns Hopkins, No. 3 Wheaton (Mass.), No. 4 RIT, No. 5 Alvernia, No. 6 Elizabethtown and No. 8 Lesley (Mass.) round out the eight-team regional.
