"I'm very proud of the way out guys have fought all year to get to this point. I'm very excited for our seniors to be able to go back to the KIAC tournament and compete in Kingsport. We knew this was a big weekend and our guys worked extremely hard to get the field ready to play and our pitchers did a great job of attacking hitters and giving us a chance to win." (Coach Dickson)
The Bearcats are now 6-15 in KIAC play and have qualified for the KIAC conference tournament to be held in Kingsport, TN starting May 4th.
Brescia baseball is back in action this Tuesday, when they travel to Campbellsville and play the 16th ranked Tigers. They finish up their season with a four game set against Point Park in Pittsburgh.
