Gilmer &apos;Pioneers' Have Successful Summer Season The Gilmer "Pioneers" played in the Sue Morris End of Summer Tour- nament on Saturday, July 25. This was the 4th tournament the team had competed in at the complex this sum- mer. Coached by Ryan Tomblin, Sara McFarland, Jimmy Conrad and Stevie Godfrey, the girls improved in each tournament. On Saturday. there were eight teams playing. In the morning, each team played two games to determine the seeding. Gilmer won both of their games, beating Wirt. 5-4. and West Virgina Gold, which is a hand-picked team from the Clarksburg area, 9-2. Tak- ing into consideration wins, runs scored and runs allowed, Gilmer was one of the top two teams earning a number-one seed. They were scheduled to play in the semi-finals in the afternoon. Unfor- tunately, before they could begin, it started pouring down the rain, and the rest of the tournament was cancelled. The whole team was disappointed, but they were happy they ended the summer season on a winning note.
