The 2008 Super Regionals begin Friday, June 6 with the top-16 teams remaining after the 64-team regionals last weekend. Teams advancing with Chatham A's connections include North Carolina, NC State and Georgia. The Tar Heels, the 2 National Seed, host their second Super Regional in as many seasons, last year defeating South Carolina in Chapel Hill. The 2008 opponent, Coastal Carolina, battles the Tar Heels at UNC's temporary home in Cary, NC. Georgia, the 8 National Seed, advanced through the Athens Regional the hard way, losing the first game and winning their last four in a row. The Bulldogs have never failed to advance in the NCAA Postseason when hosting at Foley Field. NC State visits Athens after hosting the Raleigh Regional, defeating South Carolina in the regional clinching game.
