Pine Grove put a starting lineup of their six seniors on the field to close out their district schedule and they came away with a win over Belmont, taking revenge from an early season loss against the Cardinals with an 8-4 victory.
The Senior Six started the game off by throwing out the opening pitch to their fathers and each contributed in the game as the Panthers finished the regular season 19-6 (9-3).
