JDCC softball swept in Louisiana and Mississippi
A recent trip out west for the Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawk softball team did not bring out the best as they went 0-4 in their games in Louisiana and Mississippi.
The Lady Warhawks took an 8-0 loss and a 9-0 loss Friday against LSU-Eunice before taking a 9-0 loss to Jones County and a 3-1 loss to East Mississippi on Saturday. The four losses for JDCC dropped their overall record to 2-8 this season. In three of the four games, JDCC was held to no runs and no hits.
While her team fell on hard times in the four-game stretch, JDCC head coach Misti Nims said the three teams her team faced are good teams and will make her team better when conference season rolls around.
“We played the defending National Champions for Division-II JUCO in LSU-Eunice and then played Jones County who is currently ranked 15th in the nation,” Nims said. “Our schedule is preparing us for conference play. The team understands that playing against great competition is going to make us better allowing us to learn from each game.”
JDCC was scheduled to take on Pensacola State Tuesday at home before playing in the LBW round robin Saturday. The Lady Warhawks will play at Huntingdon on Wednesday, Feb. 26 before returning home on Saturday March 1 for an eight-game home stand.
