Vikings Baseball Team Returns From World Series
The MCCC baseball team returns from the NJCAA World Series late tonight after being eliminated from the 10-team tournament on Wednesday. (The Vikings got a win earlier in the week against Vincennes.) Vikings fans had a chance to watch the games via NJCAA live broadcasts. Assistant Dean and Athletics Director John Simone, who accompanied the team, reports that their hosts in Enid, OK, couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. We are proud of our Vikings, who end their season 40-8, the best record in school history! More baseball news to come next week.
