What a game!  The 'Etta Express is off to a strong start and currently ranked top of the OAC. In addition, our guys have done an amazing job of dealing with COVID thus far, and Coach Brewer is cautiously optimistic that we are on the “backside” of this epidemic.  The newly-renovated Don and Sue Schaly Field at Pioneer Park is beautiful, plays well, and has helped to create a buzz around the program that has been very impactful in our athletes’ everyday mood and in recruiting. The guys are playing well, staying healthy, and in a great frame of mind. We know they'll go far, but that they'll be even stronger with your help.

You can help keep the team strong and ensure they have the resources they need to continue playing and traveling safely by making a gift today. Want to provide a little extra incentive? Click here to pledge your gift based on the number of runs, wins, or strikeouts the Pioneers accomplish before the end of the season.
