THE MINGO BAY Classic, a baseball tournament in South Carolina, will feature 21 schools from West Virginia.
One it doesn't include is Poca, which will spend at least part of spring break week - April 1-5 - in central West Virginia, playing baseball, fishing and kayaking.
"We were going to take them south or to Cincinnati to play some Ohio and Kentucky teams and go to a couple Reds games," Justice said. "We asked the seniors and they opted for Elkins."
Coach Gene Estel's family owns a camp in that area. The Dots are scheduled to play at Grafton on April 4 before an April 6 doubleheader against Bridgeport.
"We left it up to them," Justice said. "I was a little surprised."

GEORGE WASHINGTON sophomore Jeff Wong is off to a torrid start during the Patriots' 5-0 beginning of the season.
Wong is batting .600 with a team-leading 12 RBI and has one of the Patriots' three home runs.
Wong hit his homer over the newly constructed 24-foot fence in left field.
The fence was named Robert Wong Wall in honor of Jeff Wong's father, who passed away last year.
