Spencer had a 3.59 ERA with a 7-8 record and 67 strikeouts in 95-2/3 innings.
The Pioneers should be tough again next season as they move to the Mt. Hood Conference. Anderson is the only starter who will be lost to graduation.
I look for some fierce competition, said Oregon City coach Dave Adelhart. Central Catholic, Barlow and Clackamas are always tough, and Gresham had a great year [in 2014]. And there are some great coaches in the Mt. Hood Conference. Theyll get their teams ready.
