Triceratops Softball Season Ends at Nationals
Tri-C wins game but is eliminated after losses to two teams in the NJCAA Top 10
One of the best seasons in the history of the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) softball program ended at the NJCAA Division II National Championship tournament following losses to two teams ranked in the Top 10.
The Triceratops ended the year with a record of 37-13 after a 5-3 loss to #10 Itawamba Community College on Thursday, May 23, in the second round of the tournament’s consolation bracket.
Earlier that same day, the team beat #6 St. Louis Community College 9-4 to advance to the second round of the championships at Traceway Park in Clinton, Mississippi.
Tri-C opened the tournament with a tough draw against #4 Phoenix College, a powerhouse that played in the 2018 championship game. The Triceratops lost a 3-2 heartbreaker in the final inning to drop into the consolation bracket.
This is the third time Tri-C has qualified for nationals. The team also played for the title in 2004 and 2013 after winning the district title.
