Despite what looked like long odds, that's just what they did, topping Glenville 8-0 and 6-5. The Bobcats showed the crowd why they were the number one seed. Glenville coach Rick Moore said prior to final two games Wesleyan was a great team capable of beating anyone at anytime, no matter how the odds looked. In the end it appeared Wesleyan's batting prowess gave them a slight edge at bat. They looked hungry; the Lady Pio- neers looked tired. There were two questionable calls against Glenville that may have tilted the second game, according to specta- tors affiliated with a WVIAC confer- ence team not involved in the finals. But, debatable referree calls are common to all sports. Coach Rick Moore had only good things to say about his team and the season. The girls set a new record at MANDY PARKULO Glenville with its first winning sea- son ever, netting 2 l- 13 in the con fer- ence and 25-24 overall. Four Lady Pioneers were named to the WVIAC All-Tournament team. Those players were: Leanne Harris, Kohle Maynard, Brittney Handley and Mandy Parkulo. CAM KINDER jumped 12'6" on Friday, May 15 to qualify him for the State Track Meet.
