The PJC baseball team and softball teams both ended their seasons as the Panhandle Conference Runner-Up, and have secured spots in the State Tournament in Kissimmee.

The Pirate Baseball team finished the season with a 36-16 record, with a 16-9 record in Panhandle Conference play.  The Pirates will face Daytona Beach Community College in the first round of the State Tournament.  The winner of the State Championship earns a birth in the JUCO World Series in Grand Junction, Colo., a place where the Pirates would like to return to possibly do better than last season.  The Pirates were ousted in the World Series last year, after a strong run to the FCCAA State Championship and a 34-18 record.

The Lady Pirates ended their season with a 32-11 record, and went 15-5 in Panhandle Conference play, with 4 of the losses coming to Gulf Coast.  The FLCCAA Softball Tournament is slightly different from the baseball tournament, with the top four teams from each conference qualifying for the tournament.

In the state tournament, PJC will face St. Petersburg College in the first round of the Gulf District Tournament.  The winner of the Gulf Tournament will earn a berth in the NJCAA National Tournament in Clermont, Fla., and face the winner of the Atlantic District Tournament for the State Championship.
