The Potomac State Catamounts played their earliest game of the season on Saturday and the early start didn’t seem to affect them at all. The Catamounts defeated Jefferson College 8-5 in the opening round of the Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Potomac State’s Zach Markle went 3 for 4 with three RBIs in the win and Martinsburg native Ryan Bennett added an RBI. Catamounts ace Andy Smithmyer picked up the win.
Up next is a Monday evening match up against top-ranked Central Arizona College Vaqueros at 7:30 p.m. Central Arizona defeated South Georgia 13-3 in five innings to advance. A complete recap of the game will be right here at WVMetroNews.com once it is complete.
