The Weekly Forecast

Pioneer Performance: Both the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams claimed the first wins of their respective program histories during this past week. On Wednesday, the men bettered Alma College 7-6 at home (at Bryan Station) and went on to a two game win streak when they topped Beloit 10-9 Sunday, bringing them to 2-2 on the season. The women’s team played the first game of their program’s history at Wilmington College in Ohio and won a resounding victory 16-2.
Matchup of the Week: This Thursday at 4pm both the men and women’s tennis teams will square off against rival Centre College. The Pioneer women will be travelling to Danville for the matchup but the men will remain at home to take on the Colonels. Both teams remain winless early on in their seasons, and need to capitalize on this opportunity to claim a win over Centre to gain some valuable momentum.
Player to Watch: Currently 2-1 on the season, the Baseball Pioneers will head to Centre College to face the Colonels at 6pm on Tuesday. Junior Catcher Sam Liggett leads the team in both batting average and slugging percentage three games into the team’s young season, and his continued efforts will be essential if the Pioneers hope to remain above .500 on Tuesday by topping the Colonels.
