ATHLETIC NEWS

There will be a meeting for the Boys Basketball team immediately after school today in the Alumni Suite. If you are participating is a Spring Sport, you are excused to come to this meeting and will go to practice after.

Last night the Boys Track team finished 26th in the 52-team field at the Evansville Central Regional. In six of the eight events competed in, the guys placed either higher or at their incoming seeds! Chris Heselschwerdt (100), Brandon Barron (200), Austin Grantz (discus), 4 x 100 Relay (Isaac Ohlmann, Ethan Fulkerson, Barron, Heselschwerdt), the 4 x 400 Relay (Barron, Alex Perkinson, Tyler Upton & Zach Kaiser) and the 4 x 800 Relay (Perkinson, Upton, Alex Lancaster & Thomas Gaines). Just missing state by one spot with a 4th place finish was Spencer Purcell (discus). The 4 x 400 (Brandon Barron, Alex Perkinson, Tyler Upton, Zach Kaiser) also ran their season’s best time! Great job this season!

The Baseball team ended its season in Game 1 of the 3A sectional against #3 Silver Creek in a 7-3 loss. Kaden Willaims and Reece Davis each had doubles. The team ended the season with a 20-4 record.

Cross Country – The Boys and Girls Cross Country teams are looking for more individuals to come join us in the upcoming season. Cross Country was the 3rd largest growing sport for boys during the 2016-2017 school year and remains in the top 10 of participated sports in both boys and girls high school athletics. It’s one of the few sports where prior experience is not a necessity to become good at it. Varsity potential is there for anyone who comes out to train with the dedication and consistency it takes to achieve success, like in any aspect of life. We are certainly in need of more girl runners as graduation has required us to rebuild from the ground up. If anyone is interested, please contact Coach Masterson with any questions at pioneersxcteam@gmail.com or a current member on the team. Otherwise, conditioning will start June 4 at 6:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday mornings. Conditioning will take place Monday at PHS, Tuesdays & Thursdays at Sam Peden Community Park, Wednesday at the Big Four Bridge, and Saturdays to be announced during that week.

Boys and Girls Track team athletes who qualified for regional: There will be a group photo of regional qualifiers on Monday at 2:55 in the Koetter Gym. Please have your track jersey and shorts to change into and be in the gym by 2:55. This should give you time to clean out your locker and get changed.

2018 Cross Country – The Boys and Girls Cross Country Teams are looking for more individuals to come join us in the upcoming season. Cross country was the 3rd largest growing sport for boys during the 2016-2017 school year and remains in the top 10 of participated sports in both boys and girls high school athletics. It’s one of the few sports where prior experience is not a necessity to become good at it.
Varsity potential is there for anyone who comes out to train with the dedication and consistency it takes to achieve success like any aspect of life. We are certainly in need of more girl runners as graduation has required us to rebuild from the ground up.
If anyone is interested please contact Coach Masterson with any questions at pioneersxcteam@gmail.com or a current member on the team. Otherwise conditioning will start June 4th at 6:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday mornings. Conditioning will take place Monday at PHS, Tuesdays & Thursdays at Sam Peden Community Park, Wednesday at he Big Four Bridge, and Saturdays to be announced during that week.
