The Weekly Forecast

Pioneer Performance: The men’s tennis Pioneers propelled themselves to .500 on the season and remained undefeated in HCAC play with an 8-1 win over Manchester University at home on Saturday. Winning in straight sets in all but one match, the Pioneers performed well all around, with solid freshmen contributions from Joshua Buckman and Zachary Meikle. Men’s tennis is back-in-action again when they host Indiana University East at 3pm on Wednesday.
Matchup of the Week: This Tuesday, starting at 3:30, the Transylvania softball team will host Hanover College in a doubleheader at Hall Field. Although they are 7-17 on the season, the Pioneers are off to a 5-3 start in HCAC play and can really jump up in conference standings against the Panthers (who are 4-2 against conference opponents). The two seniors, Megan Mitchell and Michelle Ladanyi, have led the Pioneers in batting average and RBIs this season, and their leadership will be invaluable if the team is to take both games.
