Cougars Lose in District Finals But Still Get Nationals’ Bid!
The ICC women’s basketball team lost 59-40 in the District Finals to Parkland but were still hoping to get an at-large bid to the NJCAA National Tourney. However, pairings were released at 10 am on April 12th but their name did not appear on the Selection Show so they thought their season was over. But as things have often gone this year things quickly changed and due a to a team dropping out of the tournament, the Cougars now ARE IN! Due to the potential of other changes, the NJCAA has decided to wait until Friday, April 16 to announce the Cougars’ opponent & game time.
Tourney dates: April 20-24
Location: Tarlton Complex in Hickory, North Carolina
Host: Catawba Valley CC (about 45 minutes from Charlotte)
There are 16 teams in the double elimination tournament and the top 4 seeds are: Kirkwood (IA), Region 24 rival Lake Land College, Kansas City Kansas, and Johnson County (KS). The Cougars will leave on Sunday and will be chasing their 7th national championship in school history.
