The Master's College has received a lot of good news about the postseason recently.

Men's golf qualified for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Tournament.

The men's track and field team saw another athlete qualify for the NAIA Champions.

And the baseball team, previously thought to be done for the year, accepted an invitation to the National Christian College Athletic Association World Series.

And all of the events are quickly approaching.

TMC will represent the West Region in its first-ever trip to the NCCAA World Series when it heads to the eight-team tournament held at Prasco Park in Mason, Ohio. Games run from Wednesday to Saturday. The bracket and seedings have not been released.

The Mustangs finished seventh in the Golden State Athletic Conference this season with a 25-25 overall record.

Track and Field
Sophomores John Gilbertson and Anthony Pizzo had already qualified for the NAIA Championships at the end of the month, but at the Occidental Invitational on May 7, they boosted their standings.

Gilbertson, coming off his individual GSAC title in the 5,000-meter run, took first in the event with a time of 14 minutes, 12 seconds. He was followed almost immediately by Pizzo in 14:15. The times were the NAIA's fourth- and fifth-best of the year and both broke the school record. Their marks are also the 29th and 31st fastest times in the country for all levels.

Meanwhile, teammate Matthew Crichton qualified for the NAIA Championships by posted a school-record 9:27 in the 3,000 steeplechase.

The NAIA Championships are held in Marion, Ind., from May 24-29.

Men's Golf
There was some question as to whether the Mustangs would earn a trip to the NAIA Tournament after falling a few strokes short of an automatic bid at the Regional Championships in April.

However, TMC was among the 29 teams that will make the trip to Silvis, Ill., the NAIA announced Thursday.

The event will be held May 24-27 at TPC Deere Run.

Pt. Loma Nazarene was the only other GSAC school named in the release.
