The Sinclair Community College Baseball team was ranked top 20 in the nation for the 2013/2014 season despite setbacks because of the weather.
“Four of the five teams were ranked in the 20 in the nation,” Athletic Director Jeff Price said.
Due to the uncooperative spring weather, the April 17 softball game had to be rescheduled because the opponents field was under water, according to Price. As a result, he had to find a replacement game.
Softball Player Sierra Breeze, a second-year student from Kettering who is majoring in Early Childhood Education, said they were headed to Indiana Tech to play the replacement.
“We have won more games than we have lost and we also got to travel to Myrtle Beach for a tournament, which was a great team building experience.”
Price said that Sinclair’s Baseball team recorded this season’s second no-hit decision and their bats are hot. In a recent four game series, Pride batsmen plated 34 runs against conference with Cuyahoga. In addition, they beat a strong Ohio State club team.
HVAC student Noey Graham said he was unaware the team was good enough to beat Ohio State.
Both the Softball and Baseball teams play their home games at Athletes in Action Field, which is located in Xenia at 1197 South Detroit St.
The Softball teams last home games are scheduled for May 1 and 2, while the Baseball teams are April 25 through the 30.
“I see Sinclair as part of a student athlete’s journey and I enjoy helping young men and women enrich their lives,” Price said.
He added that the majority of Sinclair’s Student-Athletes go on to four year schools, and often come back to thank the department for the investment in their future.
In addition, the department will have a new website in the upcoming month similar to that of Penn State and Yale which can be found at sinclairathletics.com.
“The website should be live in about a month,” Price said.
