Again, the Pirates were involved in a bittersweet week. They fell victim to archrival Bay Village in the sectional tournament, but were able to achieve some other milestones for the season. The disappointment over the boys early exit from the tournament cannot take away a stellar effort that included a comeback from a 6-0 deficit and an epic 11 inning game that led to both sides walking away with a great deal of mutual respect.
However, the fella's were able to put together a 2-1 week that included wins over Bay (3-2) and Fairview (19-9). The wins helped to achieve some milestones on a good season. The Pirates, for the first time in 11 years, posted a winning season (16-11 to date) and were able to take soul possession of 2nd place in the WSC.
