KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

Despite the fact that its school is closing, the Virginia Intermont baseball team controls its own destiny in the conference tournament.

After a 20-28 season, the Cobras are the eight seed in the Appalachian Athletic Conference tourney.

In the midst of financial woes the college is closing its doors. Head coach Jeremy Christian told News 5 WCYB Monday that this is a unique situation for his team.

"Definitely not one as a head coach you think you are going to go through," Christian said.

"A lot is going on. It has been a hectic few weeks. We have tried to focus all of our attention on the guys and preparation for this contest."

The AAC tournament is double elimination. Regardless of Monday's outcome against top-seeded Tennessee Wesleyan the Cobras will play another game Tuesday.
