"Peninsula Bottling Co. has been a supporter of Pirate athletics since we started varsity athletics back up in 1997, and they continue to contribute at a very high level," Ross said. "Pepsi has helped us with scoreboards for our gym and field over the years and this contribution enabled us to use technology to recognize all of our sponsors, to show replays, and to promote events at the college on our new big screen. We are very thankful to Jim and Harrison and the Pepsi family for their support."
