PASCO, Wash. -- Columbia Basin College is taking its game to the NWAACC Championship Tournament but they may not be taking the path they would have liked.
The Hawks won the regular season Eastern Region Title this season, their third in a row. However, CBC lost some of its momentum this weekend, losing both of its Eastern Region Tournament games.
"The confidence is there because we did get it done," said Hawks Head Coach Steve Farrington. "We just didn't get it done recently. It's like taking a hundred ground balls, you miss a couple, you have to remember those 98 that you fielded well."
"You go in strong and continue strong," said CBC Shortstop John Reilly. "We seem to put the fork in them and never be able to twist it. We start out strong in games and never finish them."
On Thursday, the team will take on Pierce Community College in the opening round of the NWAACC Championship Tournament.
