Like the poem said: A Sad Day in Pittsburg

By ELLIS KNOX

“Casey at The Bat” written in 1888 by Ernest Thayer certainly describes the mood in Pittsburg, Friday night, March 23 at Big Green Stadium and the Lady Pirates’ field, “but there is no joy in Mudville…” - nor in Pittsburg. The Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks softball team and the Hawks baseball team arrived in town to play both Pittsburg teams. The Lady Pirates fell to the Lady Hawks by one point and the Pirates lost by two.

By ELLIS KNOX

 

Pirate Soccer is undefeated in 4A Region 2, District 13 Soccer standings. The Pirates have sailed into their fourth District Championship in a row. The Pirates played their last home game, last district game and their last game of the regular season against the Pleasant Grove Hawks and defeated the Hawks 4-3. This game was the Hawks game to win, to tie for District or defeat the Pirates by at least two goals and win the district.
