Pioneer Sports This Week: A Roundup (January 18-23)

The weather played a significant factor in this week's athletic competition, cancelling a bowling match on Friday, and a wrestling match on Thursday. Aside from that, Pioneer varsity athletic teams did very well, losing only three events all week.
Both swim teams stand at 2-2 in league play, and are
well-poised for playoff action
