After an up-and-down season, head coach Rayner Noble's team flashed its grit in the opening game of the Super Regionals to defeat Rice, 5-2. But, as twists and turns would have it, the Cougars' season ended after the crosstown rivals rallied with two consecutive wins to advance to the College World Series, and eventually win the national title. The Cougars (37-30) finished the season ranked in four national polls, including No. 16 in the Collegiate Baseball poll. Losing the core of the team to the MLB Amateur Draft, the Sugars will bust out the claws to reclaim those rankings. Juniors pitcher Brad Sullivan and closer Ryan Wagner were two of the Cougars marking their final seasons at UH with awards and records. Sullivan, who was drafted at the No. 25 slot by Oakland, Posted a 6-8 record with 154 strikeouts, only four away from breaking the UH record. Wagner, who was the 14th pick overall by Cincinnati, earned * UH-record 15 saves and, with 16.8 strikeouts per nine innings, *ased a 39-year-old NCAA Division I record. I With guys like these gone, new players must step up for the sugars to continue telling their story — not just about next •eason, but the one about a winning baseball program.
