ELMHURST, Ill. - After finishing the regular season with a 19-9 league record, South Dakota State secures the top seed at this weekend's Summit League Baseball Championship in Tulsa, Okla.  The Jackrabbits claimed the top seed over Oral Roberts, the tournament's No. 2 seed, by virtue of winning three out of four games against the Golden Eagles during the regular season. This will be the first time since ORU joined the league in 1998 that it will not be the No. 1 seed.

Centenary is the No. 3 seed after compiling a 17-9 league record, while Oakland claimed the No. 4 seed with a 13-14 league mark. The Golden Grizzlies captured the final spot with a four-game series sweep over Southern Utah in the final week of the regular season.

The double-elimination tournament will be held Thursday-Saturday, May 27-29, at J.L. Johnson Stadium on the campus of Oral Roberts University. The winner of The Summit League title will earn the league's automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament.
