ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Umpqua Community College baseball is officially back, and the RiverHawks took to the field for the first time in 35 years Saturday for their season-opening games.
And they made it count as the Riverhawks swept Olympic College, 6-2 and 7-4, at Bill Gray Stadium at Champion Car Wash Field in front of a good crowd.
Former UCC head coach Dan Withers threw out the ceremonial first pitch to get things started.
The two squads met again on Sunday with Umpqua taking the first game 5-4 and Olympic salvaging a split with an 8-4 win in the nightcap.
Up next, UCC (3-1 overall) travels to Yakima for a non-league doubleheader at Parker Faller Field in Washington.
