CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – No. 4 national seed North Carolina (47-14) successfully completed its Super Regional sweep over West Virginia (36-24) on Saturday night in Chapel Hill, securing its first trip to the College World Series since 2018.

UNC is making its 12th College World Series appearance and first under head coach Scott Forbes. The Tar Heels will play No. 12 seed Virginia in an opening-round game next weekend in Omaha.

Playing in its 36th NCAA Tournament, the homestanding Tar Heels defeated the unseeded Mountaineers, 8-6, on Friday night in game one before tonight’s 2-1 win in game two to clinch the best-of-three Super Regional series.

Tonight’s win marked the Tar Heels’ eighth Super Regional championship in school history and the first with Forbes at the helm. 

Carolina, which went to Omaha seven times from 2006-18, has now advanced to the College World Series in seven of the last nine tournaments in which it has been a top-8 national seed.
