WINTERVILLE—The NJCAA released its weekly softball polls this morning, and for the first time this season, Pitt Community College has cracked the top 20.
At 25-5 overall, PCC is ranked 20th among the nation’s Division I junior colleges. The Bulldogs closed out regular-season play April 18 with a pair of victories over Richard Bland College.
Pitt enters this weekend’s Region X Conference Tournament at Louisburg College on an eight-game winning streak. The Bulldogs earned the top seed for this year’s tourney and will therefore play their first game Saturday at 10:30 a.m. against the winner of Friday’s contest between USC-Salkehatchie and Louisburg.
The PCC softball program is seeking its third straight trip to the national fast-pitch softball championship in St. George, Utah, and fourth trip in the past five years.
