PBA Looks to Rebound

The PBA Varsity team will look to rebound after a very poor opening weekend to the CCBC season. PBA was swept by TRU last weekend at Lloyd Nolan Yard, and after a very hard week of practice the boys are ready to head to the West Coast to take on Vancouver Island University Saturday and Sunday.  

 

It is not very often you see PBA have a weekend like they did. Opening up the season against one of their top rivals the Varsity did not perform up to expectations. Coach Hubka had this to say about last weekend:

 

“Ultimately we put way too much pressure on ourselves as individuals. Give TRU credit, they played extremely well, and we did not! We were plagued all weekend by mental and physical errors that just cannot happen against an experienced team like TRU.”

 

“This week, I felt like we had a couple great days of practice and a very good discussion on what we need to change to be successful moving forward.”

 

Coach Hubka is doing his best to stay positive as we are only four games into a long spring season. Hopefully the boys can right the ship this weekend, and get back on a track to the top of the standings! There were a few bright spots on an otherwise dismal weekend. Recent Lethbridge Bulls signee, Torrin Vaselenak hit his 6th homerun of the year, and continues to be a very tough out. Kyle Poapst threw the entire 4th game for PBA, registering his best outing of the year and giving the team a chance to win the ball game. Ultimately the team lost that game 6-5.

 

Varsity will play double-headers Saturday and Sunday at VIU. Saturday first pitch will be at 1:00pm and Sunday will be a 10:00am start.

 

The PBA Junior Varsity team will be back in action at Lloyd Nolan Yard this weekend against the UofC JV program. JV was in Miles City last weekend and had a very promising showing! The boys went 1-2 against an older, talented college team. The lack of experience showed on the PBA side, as the boys held leads late in all 3 games and only managed to pull out the win in one of them. All in all, coach Sawyer was very happy with how his team competed for the weekend, and hopes to continue that good play this weekend. The JV team will play double-headers both days starting at 11:00am. Come on out and support the program!
