The program has received #1 regional seeds on four occasions (2005, 2007, 2008, 2010) and won 50+ games in 2005, 2007, 2008, and 2010. In addition, the Chanticleers have hosted NCAA Regionals in 2007, 2008, and 2010 and a Super Regional in 2010. In 2010 Coastal went 29-0 in Big South play winning both the regular season Big South Championship and the Big South Tournament Championship plus the Regional, but lost in the Super Regionals 2-0 to the University of South Carolina who went on to win its first of two consecutive College World Series National Championships.
