The Marietta College Pioneers (logo at left) repeated as NCAA Division 3 World Series champions, as reported here at Balladeer’s Blog yesterday afternoon. The Pioneers did it with a flourish, too, casually dusting the St Thomas University Tommies, the only team that had beaten them so far in this year’s Series, by a score of 6-0. Then they pounded the Wheaton (MA) Lyons 7-2 proving that the Lyons (yes, with a “y”) taking them into extra innings a few days ago was just a fluke.
Today the World Series’ continue in the NAIA, D2 and NJCAA. The NAIA’s LSU- Shreveport Pilots (riverboat pilots) clash with the Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldogs for the right to face the Cinderella Rogers State University Hillcats, in tomorrow’s championship game. Keep checking back for updated scores as they become available.
