The Lipscomb Bisons, who were picked to finish last in the conference preseason poll, have clinched a berth in the 2007 Atlantic Sun Championship presented by Progress Energy.

The Bisons 10-2 win over Jacksonville Thursday night, coupled with losses on Thursday and Friday by ETSU, sealed the berth, the first for the Bisons since joining the conference.

"We worked hard all season, and it all came together." says Coach Jeff Forehand. "This is huge for our program. We now need to focus on winning the next two games and pick up a few more spots."

The tournament is hosted by Stetson University at Melching Field at Conrad Park in DeLand, Fla. May 23-26.
