Powell Pioneers Baseball Update [VIDEOS]
The Powell Pioneers will be hosting Wyoming Department of Legion Baseball Class ‘A’ State Tournament in a couple of weeks.
Powell got off to a good start with a 6-3 record over the first three weeks of this season. The Pioneers hit a bumpy stretch, where they dropped seven in a row. Recently, Powell has been splitting doubleheaders.
Cole Havens from KODI and The Big Horn Radio Network in Cody was kind enough to help WyoPreps out with a look at the Pioneers. In the video above, he spoke to player Collin Queen and manager Joe Cates about how their season has gone to this point, the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on things this year, plus what they’ve been working on, and getting ready for postseason action.
Queen is hitting a whopping .565 this season. He’s got 25 RBI’s and scored 28 runs. Queen has walked 19 times and struck out only once. On the mound, he’s 3-1 with a 2.20 ERA. Queen has thrown 35 innings and allowed only 20 walks with 40 strikeouts.
Powell closes out its regular season with a conference twin bill at Lovell on Friday. Then, the Pioneers head to the West District Tournament in Cody, July 24-26. If they qualify, the state tournament will be on their home field.
WyoPreps would like to thank Cole Havens for his time and effort in helping us put together this baseball update.
