Quite the Welcome Mat on US-33

The Eastern Continental Divide

Luray to Salem - You can't get there from here...

Welcome !

       The drive over was filled with views that could stock a Post Card rack and then some. If you haven’t crossed the mountains on US-33 before you might want to add it to the to do list. See the sights in Franklin and Seneca Rocks among others. It turns out that while the campus is in Salem the team plays it home games in neighboring Clarksburg.

The End of the Regular Season for the Golden Bears

27 04 2010

EAST BANK – It seemed just like the other day that Lawrence Nesselrodt and his West Virginia Tech Golden Bears kicked off their 2010 baseball season.

                 But the reality is that WVT will head over to Salem International University to face the Fighting Tigers on Wednesday for a 3:00 PM twin bill that will bring the curtain down on the regular season. Ness and his young Cubs (17 Freshman on the roster, including Kevin Bocock from here in Dayton) made great strides over the past 50 games will playing in the ultra-tough NAIA Mid-South Conference. The team will head out to Rio Grande, Ohio for the Mid-South tournament on Friday where they will play a best 2 of 3 versus the #2 seed Rio Grande (Ohio).

             So if you are in the Salem, West Virginia area on Wednesday afternoon you will have one more opportunity to catch the WVU-Tech nine in action!
