Tri-C Women Challengers Softball Team has won the XII Regionals! They are going to Nationals next week (May 14-18). They will be playing in the NJCAA Division national championships in Clinton, Mississippi.
On May 10, the Challengers defeated Oakland Community College in Mississippi with a 4-0 win.
Head Coach, Bryan Komlos, was very pleased with his team this season, with some words of excitement, he said “On a wet, rain soaked day the Tri-C Challengers had one game to win to move on to the National Tournament. In front of them was a rematch with Oakland. After the 2 hr rain delay play resumed in the second with the score, 0-0. In the 3rd Lexi Sheets hit a single and while in a “pickle” Kelly Kirkpatrick scored the winning run. To add to the lead, Jill Coyle hit her first HR of the tournament scoring Jacque Vavro and Lexi Sheets. The Challengers started the tournament as the number 1 seed and only gave up 2 runs for the tournament.”
The Women Challengers now have a chance to win the National Championship, and become National Champipns!
