Softball at the NJCAA 2016 National Championship

Illinois Central Softball entered as #8 seed in the NJCAA DII Softball National Championship May 19-21, 2016, in Clinton, MS. The tournament title seemed illusive for the Cougars during Round 1 when they lost to Labette 1-2. However, the ladies rallied in Round 2 on Thursday by beating Potomac 4-0 and later Highland 11-6. On Friday, they faced #6 Kankakee Community College ultimately losing to them with a score of 3-6.  Thank you for a great season, ladies. We are so proud of you!
