Welcome Home Pirates

What a triumphant return home for the East Carolina Pirates Monday!

The Pirates landed just before noon at the Kinston Regional Jetport, where fans gathered to welcome the team home.

Dozens of purple and gold supporters lined the fence along the tarmac to congratulate the Pirates for their win over Boise State at the Hawaii Bowl.
