The Meridian Community College Eagles are starting to peak at the right time of the season after getting off to a very slow start to the 2014 season. The Eagles extended its winning streak to five games with a doubleheader sweep (9-3, 10-7) of Wallace-Hanceville Community College Wednesday afternoon at Scaggs Field.

The Eagles moved its record to 14-12 overall with the sweep, while the Lions dropped to 7-20 overall for the year. Meridian will now prepare for a big weekend at Scaggs Field as Baton Rouge Community College will be in town to begin a three-game series. The Miss-Lou Conference series will begin Saturday with a doubleheader at 1 p.m. and will conclude with the third game of the set Sunday at 1 p.m.
