MCC softball team takes charge of league race
NORTH PLATTE – The McCook Community College softball team picked up a pair of wins Wednesday over North Platte in two distinctly different ways.
Freshman Angel Valdez (West Jordan, Utah) tossed a complete game three-hitter in Game 1 to give MCC a 3-1 win and a seventh-inning grand slam off the bat of Hannah Jensen helped secure a 15-10 win in Game 2.
The wins put MCC in the driver’s seat in the Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference standings with a 5-1 mark (all on the road) and will play each of the three conference teams twice more at home.
The win also puts MCC at 22-22 on the season.
This weekend, the Lady Indians will travel to Sterling, Colo. for a doubleheader with Northeastern Junior College Saturday at 1 p.m. (MT) and to Scottsbluff Sunday to play Western Nebraska in a doubleheader at 1 p.m. (MT).
The Lady Indians will be home for the final 10 games of the season with a doubleheader Tuesday against Otero Junior College (11 a.m.), Wednesday against Central Community College (1 p.m.), and Friday against Trinidad State Junior College (11 a.m.).
