Western Carolina (8-2, 3-0 SoCon) has had a good start to its 2009 campaign as the Catamounts  took two out of three from the 24th ranked USC Trojans and are 3-0 in conference play having swept Appalachian State. The Catamounts are led by junior second baseman Nick Liles and freshman outfielder Ross Heffley. As a team, Western Carolina is hitting .319 on the season and has 23 doubles, four triples and ten home runs.
