Norris Sets Save Record As Eagles Top Hillsborough
Polk State College sophomore closer Trey Norris (Frostproof) set the school's saves record Friday as the Eagles edged Hillsborough Community College 3-2 in Tampa.
Norris pitched the ninth for his 12th save of the season, breaking the previous school record of 11 in a season held by Reid Noah (2011) and Joey Upchurch (1994).
Eagle freshman Matt Pearce (Bonita Springs/3-0) posted the victory, holding the Hawks to two runs over eight innings.
The victory was Polk's 11th in a row.
Polk is ranked first in the state and third in the NJCAA. The Eagles (20-2) host Hillsborough Saturday, March 2, at 1 p.m. in Winter Haven.
