Pioneer Performance: The entire men’s lacrosse team earns the “Pioneer Performance” this week, as they defeated Elmhurst College 14-4 at home on Friday. That was the team’s last home game of their inaugural season, and they finished at an undefeated 6-0 (currently 7-4 overall). With three games left on the season, the Pioneers need one more win to finish over .500 in their first season, and their next game comes Wednesday at rival Centre College.
Matchup of the Week: Sitting at 9-9 on the season, and 3-3 in HCAC play, the baseball Pioneers will look to improve their record when they host conference opponent Hanover College this Tuesday. This game comes after a tough double-header at Manchester University, where the Pioneers dropped both games. With three out of the last four Pioneer losses coming by only one run, look for Transy to improve their luck on Tuesday.
Player to Watch: After being named HCAC Golfer of the Week for the week ending on March 18th, look for Jantzen Latham to lead the Pioneers as they compete in the Emory Invitational on Monday. This comes after Transylvania Golf was named 12th in the newest Golf World/ Nike Golf Coaches’ Poll, up four spots from the last poll.
