Copiah Lincoln Community College spring sports cut short

NATCHEZ — The National Junior College Association announced on Monday that spring competition and the upcoming basketball championships were canceled due to the COVID-19 virus.

“In light of the progressive evolvement of the COVID-19 situation, the NJCAA has decided to end all competition for the remainder of the academic year,” stated Dr. Christopher Parker, NJCAA President & CEO. “As an association, the NJCAA exhausted all possible avenues to potentially postpone competition for both upcoming basketball championships and spring sport competition. We believe following the recommendations of the CDC is in the best interest of our member colleges and our student-athletes.”

The spring competition includes all practices, regular season, postseason and national championship play. In regards to eligibility for spring sports, no spring sport student-athlete will be charged a year of participation.

With the halt to competition, the Copiah-Lincoln Community College Wolves softball, baseball, golf and men’s and women’s tennis programs have finished. The Lady Wolves softball team finished ranked No. 3 nationally in the NJCAA poll with an overall record of 12-1.

The baseball program closed out the season on a nine-game winning streak and 11-4 overall.

Co-Lin’s golf team finishes the season with three third-place finishes.

The men’s tennis team finished 1-8 overall.  The Lady Wolves tennis team, the defending Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges State Champion, closes out the season 6-3.
