Millersville improved to 43-8 overall after knocking off Charleston (W.V.) once and West Chester twice at home. The Marauders, as the top seed in the Atlantic Region, will host Seton Hill for a best-of-three series starting Friday and closing Saturday.
Soltis, a Philipsburg-Osceola graduate, has been right in the middle of it all. Soltis delivered in the NCAA Regional against University of Charleston and West Chester, going 5-11 with 3 RBIs to help the team advance to the Super Regional.
Entering Super Regionals, Soltis has started 48 games at third base and has a .333 batting average, .454 on-base percentage to go alongside a .487 slugging percentage. He has been an integral part in the success of the squad with 52 hits, 17 extra base hits and 32 RBIs.
