The Weekly Forecast
PioSphere Reporter Josh Landry

Pioneer Performance: This week’s honors belong to senior swimmer Amanda Skinner for her success Saturday against Bellarmine. At the Saturday meet, which was also Senior Day, Skinner took first place in all four of the events she competed in individually and contributed to the 200 Medley Relay win for the Pioneers. This was part of an overall women’s swimming victory over the visiting Bellarmine with a score of 114-72.

Matchup of the Week: After a home loss this past weekend to Rose-Hulman, the Transy women’s basketball Pioneers maintain a one game lead over Franklin in HCAC standings. With the last place Mt. St. Joseph coming to Transy this Wednesday at 7:30pm, a Pioneer win is essential to keeping the lead in Heartland standings. Look for continued contribution from the team’s scoring leader Nicole Coffman and from the leading freshmen, Katelyn Smith and Alex Botkin.

Player to Watch: The Transy men’s basketball team faces off against the Mount St. Joseph Lions away from home this Wednesday. After a tough loss against Rose-Hulman (the leader in HCAC standings) at home Saturday, the team will need a bounce-back win. Look for the leading scorer from Saturday, as well as for the season, Senior Ethan Spurlin to continue to lead the team on Wednesday and in the final remaining games.
