Northeast sets tryout dates for softball team

By NEMS Daily Journal

Northeast Mississippi Community College’s softball program will hold three open tryouts during the months of March and April for all unsigned, unprotected high school seniors that want to become part of the Northeast team.
Northeast, which has had more than 25 players sign to play with four-year institutions, will hold an open tryout at 10 a.m. March 19 and at 2 p.m. March 28. The final tryout will be at 2 p.m. April 11.
A prospective athlete’s season does not have to be over to tryout since said athlete is not competing against college athletes and is only trying out for a spot on the squad.
Prospective athletes need to register with Northeast softball coach Jody Long at least two days prior to the date they want to tryout.
For more information or to register for a tryout date, contact Long at 662-720-7305; 662-663-0340 or email
