The Dawgs, who were ranked as high as 5th nationally, finished the year 41-17 and was eliminated by Ole Miss in the Oxford Regional of the NCAA tournament.

In a statement by Meggs, the fifth year coach said, “I’m excited to have the opportunity to lead this program for the next six years and beyond, and I’m also excited that our entire coaching staff will return next year intact, I have always maintained that our success as a baseball program depends on our relationships. And it’s exciting for me to come to work every day knowing that he University of Washington has the same goals that we do as a program, and that is to get Omaha (for the College World Series) and to be the last team standing.”
