Monday’s rescheduled softball game for the Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawk softball team against Bishop State was good for two reasons.
Not because of the smell of the BBQ plates cooking at the game for their fundraiser but because it was sophomore recognition day and their 5-3 win in game one clinched a playoff spot for the team.

JDCC lost game two 7-4 to end their regular season 22-30 overall and 7-13.
