Last season, Pitt Community College defeated Potomac State and ended its chances of heading to the Junior College World Series. One year later, Potomac State returned the favor and defeated Pitt and advanced to the 2011 JUCO World Series.
Potomac State head coach Doug Little said this was a great accomplishment for the program.
“It’s something we’re really proud of and something that we’ve worked hard all year since August to try and get here,” said a happy, but relieved Doug Little. “We realize only ten teams in the country get a chance to do it…Our guys really worked hard.”
Potomac State defeated Pitt in extra innings Saturday, ending the Eastern District Tournament series 2-1. This will be Potomac State’s seventh appearance in the Junior College World Series.
The Junior College World Series is held in Grand Junction, Colorado and includes 10 teams from NJCAA Division 1. Past competitors include baseball greats Kirby Puckett and Curt Schilling and the No. 1 draft pick of 2010 Bryce Harper.
Potomac State will face Jefferson College of Missouri this Saturday at 9 AM in the first game of the tournament.
