It’s seniors night in Kelowna, as the Okanagan College Coyotes look to end their Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC) regular season on a high-note going into playoffs.
On Friday night, the Coyotes welcome the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack to town for the last two games of the regular season as they are fighting for the first overall seed in the league.
Going into the games, the Coyotes are tied for first place in the league with the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs with a record of 19-11. Both teams complete their regular seasons on Friday.
The Coyotes played down in Chilliwack against the University of Fraser Valley Cascades on Thursday, where they won 8-5 and 12-5.
