  • Dolphins drop series opener,...

     The Brunswick Community College baseball team has repeated a mantra as long as Robbie Allen has been the head coach.

    When approaching a three-game series on the road, the team has a saying, “Two’s a must, three’s a plus,” meaning the goal is to win twice, but a third win to secure a sweep is icing on the cake.

    When the Dolphins traveled to Pitt Community College, one of the top teams in Region 10, last weekend, BCC didn’t get to enjoy the icing on the cake, but it did get the job done.
