On March 21st, our program lost two very tough games to NAIA’s #9 ranked Point Park Pioneers. Our young men were down, and understandably so with the recent fortunes. I tried to explain to all them that our season was a marathon, not a sprint. Fast forward 2 1/2 weeks we have now set a school record after winning 14 ina row! One of the most memorable wins came last week when Sophomore Sam Weightman hit 2-run walk-off HR vs Clark State! Check out the link below!
