Pioneers Host the #3 Ranked Team in the Country This Weekend

The Pioneers will certainly be tested over the next two weeks of conference play.  Vol State (12-4) (2-1) will get an early conference season measuring stick unmatched by anyone else in the country as they will take on Dyersburg State (16-2) (3-0), ranked #3 in the NJCAA, this weekend followed by the NJCAA #2 ranked team in Walters State (21-3) (3-0).

Sometimes, coaches worry when they look ahead at the schedule and see the #2 ranked team in the country because their kids may get caught looking ahead.  But, that shouldn't be the case here as the Neers host the #3 ranked team in the country this weekend.  "We know going into conference play that we are going to see some of the best arms and some of the best bats in the country.  No matter the program, the TCCAA conference is one of the best conferences around," says Coach Hunt.  Vol State's pitching staff will be tested as Dyersburg State will be bringing several guys in the lineup with very impressive stats.  They certainly haven't had much trouble scoring runs in games; the Eagles have put up 165 runs in 18 games so far this year.
