ICC fought off both Coahoma and Mother Nature on Friday to win its first MACJC North Division softball championship.
The Lady Indians (28-21, 20-4) scored 10 runs in the top of the second inning on the way to an 18-1 victory in the first game, then won 14-1 in the weather-delayed second game, which was shortened by rain to five innings.
“It feels great,” third-year coach Chad Case said of winning the school’s first North Division softball title. “The girls really bought into the program, played well down the stretch, and worked extremely hard.”
The MACJC state tournament starts Thursday in Fulton.
Some South Division slots were still to be determined on Monday night, while Northeast needs a win today in a single game at Northwest to make the tourney field.
