FULTON – Itawamba Community College head softball coach Andy Kirk announced the Lady Indians’ softball schedule for the upcoming 2012 season.

ICC will open on the road with a rematch against Jones County Junior College (Feb 16), the team that eliminated the Lady Indians from last season’s MACJC Tournament, before hosting Jackson State Community College (Feb 22) from Tennessee in their home-opener.

“February 16 can’t get here quick enough,” said Kirk who took over the Lady Indian softball program in July. “The girls have been working hard to get ready for the season because they understand what it takes to continue the proud tradition that comes along with being a part of the Lady Indian softball program.”

The Lady Indians will open division play with back-to-back home doubleheaders against Mississippi Delta (March 1) and Northwest (March 3).

“We have an extremely tough non-division schedule, but I feel like that playing that kind of competition will have us more than ready for division play,” said Kirk.
