Deacons Finish Road Trip In The Triad
Wake Forest wraps up its seven-game road trip on Tuesday and Wednesday at UNC Greensboro and High Point, respectively. The Demon Deacons have been successful away from home, with a 4-1 mark on the current swing, including two wins against Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

The wins moved Wake Forest into a tie for second place in the ACC with Clemson. Georgia Tech slips to fourth and play the Tigers this weekend.

The Demon Deacons have already played and defeated both the Spartans and Panthers this season at Hooks Stadium.

Sullivan Gets ACC Honors Again
Senior Cory Sullivan earned conference honors for the third time this season when he was named ACC Player of the Week on Monday. Sullivan led the Demon Deacons to a 4-1 week by hitting 8-for-18 (.444) with three home runs, nine RBI, 12 runs and four stolen bases.

Sullivan's week was highlighted by a four-for-five day against Georgia Tech on Sunday with two home runs and a career-high six RBI.

Hitting Beachballs
Much of Wake's recent success can be attributed to the team's proficiency at the plate. Over the last ten games, the Deacons are hitting .361 led by Matt Price who is hitting .485 during the span.

Greer Goes For 500 at Wake Forest
Wake Forest head coach George Greer needs just two wins to reach 500 for his career. He would become just the seventh coach in ACC history to reach the milestone while in the conference.

Two weeks ago, Greer got his 600th career victory, a 4-1 over victory over Virginia.

This is Greer's 14th season at Wake Forest with a record of 498-305-3, the most wins by any Deacon coach in history, regardless of sport. Greer coached his 1,000th Division I game last season in the NCAA Tournament and owns a career record of 604-427-7 (.585).

Greer is the school's 23rd coach in the program's 87 season history. His 14-year tenure is the longest of any prior Wake Forest baseball coach, ahead of John Caddell's 13 years from 1926-39.

Bush Becomes All-Time Saves Leader
With a save on Saturday at Georgia Tech, junior closer Dave Bush picked up number 18 for his career, passing Keith Ksansnak as Wake Forest's all-time saves leader.

Bush, who earlier this year became Wake Forest's all-time leader in appearances, has nine saves this season and is within reach of the school's single season record of 14 held by Buddy Jenkins.
