RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Carlos Rodon doesn't think North Carolina State will wait 45 years for another College World Series trip.
The Wolfpack ace said Friday that "we'll probably be there next year."
N.C. State returned to campus Friday, less than 24 hours after the best baseball season in school history came to an end with a 7-0 loss to rival North Carolina.
The Wolfpack (50-16) set a school record for wins and made their first College World Series appearance since 1968.
They already sound eager for next year to get started - and it's not hard to see why.
They'll have two possible high draft picks back for their junior season in Rodon and shortstop Trea Turner, and they both now know what it takes to make it to Omaha.
