JDCC softball ends season with two losses at state tourney
The Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawk softball team saw their stay at the state tournament in Alabaster Friday end in two games.
After receiving a bye as the No. 2 seed in the south division, JDCC lost to Shelton State in game one 8-1 and fell to Chatt. Valley 8-6 to be eliminated. The Lady Warhawks finished their season with an overall record of 25-35 and went 10-6 in conference play.
JDCC head coach Misti Nims said despite losing at the state tournament, this year’s team accomplished many things.
“They had to overcome adversity, battled through injuries, and had to learn from failure,” Nims said. “Despite all that, we finished second in conference, qualified for the state tournament, and became a family. Even though we are losing some key players due to graduation, we have 11 players returning, which includes six starters. The future looks bright and I can’t wait to get back on the field in August.”
