Softball headed back to national tournament

If you see Head Coach Kelly Saenz or any of her softball players roaming the halls of South Campus, be sure to offer them a hearty congratulations, as they finished second at the Region XIV tournament this weekend to earn a berth in the national tournament.

San Jac (39-22) went 3-2 at this weekend’s Region XIV tournament in Lufkin, defeating Paris Junior College, Northeast Texas Community College, and Trinity Valley Community College; with two losses to host Angelina College.

Seven San Jac players earned all-Region and All-Conference honors.

This is the second-ever trip to the NJCAA national tournament for the San Jacinto College softball team. In 2008, San Jac finished fourth in the nation.

The 2014 NJCAA national softball championship will take place May 14-17 in St. George Utah. The tournament will be aired live on NJCAATV.
