Pirates President Coonelly in the Valley

If the success the Pirates had in the month of April is any indication as to how the Buccos are going to finish, the 20 season losing streak will come to an end. The Bucs reached 15 wins in April for the first time since 1992, when they finished 96-66.

“Young players have to learn how to win, and we’ve learned some lessons over the last two years. Some lessons we learned when things were going extremely well. We learned what it was like and that we could be a good team,” said Pirate president Frank Coonelly.

Pirates fans got a chance to celebrate that early success with team president Frank Coonelly tonight in New Castle. He was the guest speaker at the Penn State Alumni Association meeting at the New Englander Banquet Center.

“I think we also learned some lessons when things went poorly, and sometimes you need to learn those tough lessons before you’re ready as a group of young men to win together,” Coonelly stated.
