Southwest Releases 2012 Baseball Schedule

New Southwest baseball coach George Sykes has released the 2012 schedule which includes 13 dates at Millington's USA Stadium, the new home of the Saluqis. Southwest opens the season February 2-4 with four games at the Kevin Miller Classic in Panama City, Florida. The Saluqis will play Andrew College twice and single games against St. John's River Community College and the host team Gulf Coast State College.

Southwest will play a 27-game conference schedule with two-game series against each of the members of the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA). The Saluqis will host Cleveland State, Dyersburg State, Roane State and Volunteer State and will travel to Motlow State, Walters State, Jackson State, Columbia State and Chattanooga State. All home games will be at USA Stadium with the exception of the Roane State series which will be at Bolton High School.

In addition to the games in Panama City, the non-conference schedule includes away games at Williams Baptist JV, Northwest Mississippi, Mississippi Delta, Rhodes JV, Holmes, and Wabash Valley and home games against Williams Baptist JV, Northwest Mississippi, Rhodes JV and Southeastern Illinois. The Saluqis will also host the Flag City Classic at USA Stadium on February 24-25.
