The baseball team had a busy week as they finished 4-3 and 4-2 in AMCC play. They split doubleheaders with Mt. Aloysius (L 8-7 and W 18-4) and Hilbert (L 5-4 and W 24-5), lost a non-conference game vs. Ithaca 12-3, and then swept a key conference doubleheader vs. Pitt Greensburg (W 5-3 & W 5-3).

Collin Johnson (Alfred Almond) and Dan Woodward (Honeoye) both hit .538 on the week. Johnson was 14 for 26 with three doubles, a triple, and 9 RBI while Woodward was 7 for 14 with four doubles. Josh Laurie (LeRoy) hit .462 with 12 hits including a double and three homers. As a team the Pioneers hit 362 with 66 runs scored.
