The Concord University Football program ended the regular season undefeated, giving them a home field advantage for their first playoff game.

The Mountain Lions earned that spot after winning the Mountain East Conference title, when they ousted Shepherd University. This is Concord’s second playoff berth in four years. Concord will play the winner of the game between West Chester University and Slippery Rock University. Both of those teams will travel to West Virginia from Pennsylvania.

The West Liberty Hilltoppers will play for an NCAA Division II men's basketball championship for the first time in school history.  The Hilltoppers knocked off South Carolina-Aiken 86-83 in Thursday night's national semifinals.

West Liberty isi now 31-3 overall.  WTOV-TV reports the 7th ranked Hilltoppers will face 20th ranked Central Missouri in the championship game Saturday at 3:00 p.m. in Evansville,   Indiana. 


National Champs again! The No. 1-ranked West Virginia University rifle team won its 16th NCAA Championship in Murray, Ky., Friday.

The Mountaineers won the championship last year too, and it’s the third win under coach Jon Hammond. WVU’s first title under Hammond came in 2009. The rifle team is the only WVU program to win an NCAA Championship.

Hammond says it was a relaxed win, and that his team was confident, focused, and capable. He also expects good things next year as all five shooters that shot at this year’s championship will return.
