ECU, staff reports

Saturday, October 13, 2018

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.

East Carolina did not have a men’s or women’s basketball player lauded by the American Athletic Conference as a preseason all-conference pick.

The AAC released its preseason polls Monday, which had the ECU men 11th out of 12 teams and the Pirate women in eighth place.

UCF led the…

It is the time of year when perspectives can become very contrasting for college football teams depending on where they are in the standings.

Very often, the great teams already have found ways to survive and stay on top, whereas the hard-luck teams often continue to lament coming close but not…

The East Carolina football team is turning to true freshman quarterback Holton Ahlers for this week and with a long-term plan in mind for the 6-foot-3, 236-pound left-hander to be the leader of the ECU offense.

Coach Scottie Montgomery announced Monday during his weekly news conference that Ahlers,…

One thing that stands out with first-year coach Joe Dooley about the East Carolina basketball team’s big men is their potential.

The Pirates are not going to overpower many teams in the post — they’re tallest player is 6-foot-9 freshman Rico Quinton — and they are young, but…

It was easy to think back to East Carolina football’s successful run in Conference USA during Saturday night’s game against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

The first reminder was Houston being the visiting team. The Cougars occupied the same visiting sideline Dec. 5, 2009, for a…

Things are tightening at the top between N.C. State, Appalachian State and Duke, but no changes again this week.

Here are The Daily Reflector’s updated in-state college football power rankings:

1. N.C. State

Record: 5-0.

Why No. 1? Because the Wolfpack is undefeated. The game many…

These three questions appeared in the Pirate Gameday section previewing the East Carolina-Houston football game, which ended as a 42-20 win for Houston that could have been more lopsided if not for a few late touchdowns by the Pirates.

Speaking of those touchdowns ...

A week-long theme of a possible new-look East Carolina football offense did not come to fruition Saturday night against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

On a night when ECU had its first announced crowd of less than 30,000 since the finale of the 2005 season, the Pirates used all three of their…

East Carolina’s football offense started too slow and delivered too little again on Saturday night in a 42-20 beating at the hands of visiting Houston.

From third-down miscues to an inability to reach the red zone to a touchdown drought that stretched seven full quarters, ECU (2-4, 0-3…
