Senior Nick Ciaccia won the men’s individual title and East Carolina claimed second place in both the men’s and women’s races at the Pirate Invitational held Friday at Overton’s Lake Kristi in Grimesland.

Ciaccia ran an 8K time of 24 minutes, 34.46 seconds, which tied for the 10th-fastest in school history. Fellow senior Alex Boseman (24:44.21) was fifth.

Duke won the men’s crown and the Elon women took top honors in close fashion, scoring 40 points to the Pirates’ 50.

On the women’s side, in the absence of ECU’s top runner Grace Sullivan, freshman Anna Bristle was the top Pirates’ top finisher as she ran a 6K time of 21:27.16 for a fifth-place result and the 12th-fastest mark in program history.

Baseball matchup

The East Carolina baseball team will host Pitt Community College in a fall exhibition contest on Oct. 21 at 1 p.m. at Clark-LeClair Stadium. Admission is free, but concessions will not be sold.

ECU already defeated Virginia, 5-2, this fall. Bryant Packard posted three hits and College of Central Florida transfer Christian Smallwood hit a home run. The roster for PCC, an annual junior college powerhouse, includes former J.H. Rose standouts Anthony Saieed and TyShawn Barrett.

Following the Sunday exhibition, the Pirates will continue their fall workouts leading up to the annual Purple-Gold World Series, which will be held Nov. 2-4 (times to be determined).

Volleyball swept

An important weekend for East Carolina  in volleyball began Friday night when errors hampered ECU (12-5, 4-2 AAC)  in a 25-16, 25-12, 25-21 loss at defending league champion Wichita State (9-8, 4-2), which thrived to a .292 hitting percentage.
