The Pioneers got a much needed 14-7-win against Motlow State Community College after going 2-5 in their last seven games over Spring Break.

In two games against Roane State Community College, the Pioneers split the series, winning game one 2-0 and dropping game two 3-0.

“Game one , we got two early runs and our pitching did a great job of keeping them out of the game when we couldn’t score. Game two, the shoe was on the other foot pretty much,” said head coach Ryan Hunt.

In their series against Schoolcraft College, the Pioneers again split a two-game series. This time losing game one and winning game two.

“Game one, that game was neck-and-neck until late in the game. We managed to get up 6-4, but we gave up two runs tying the game and in the last inning they got the one run to end it,” said Hunt.

Game two, the Pioneers were able to end the series on a high note with a 11-1 win.

The next opponent was Columbia State Community College and the Pioneers were swept in three games.

“Those were close games and they could have gone either way, but they made more plays when they needed to, and we could not capitalize on our opportunities. We didn’t execute when we needed to, we didn’t make plays when we needed to, so they swept us,” said Hunt.
