Hagerstown Community College will enjoy another day in Colorado.
The Hawks rallied from a 5-3 deficit with a seven-run fourth inning and then held on to defeat Chipola (Fla.) College in a NJCAA Division I World Series elimination game 10-7 on Tuesday in Grand Junction, Co.
Two days after an 18-2 loss to Grayson (Tex.) CC in the opening-round, HCC bounced back with three home runs, a gutty pitching performance by Spencer Cromer and closing effort by Kyle Briggs to eliminate the defending champions.
"I think this is one of the great turnarounds," said HCC coach Scot Jennings. "After losing to Grayson we came back and beat the defending champions and they were a strong hitting team."
