Today isn’t just any old Wednesday, but in fact a championship caliber Wednesday.
Today former A-D-M softball standout Molly Jacobsen and the DMACC softball program will be taking their unblemished 44-0 record into the NJCAA national championship tournament.
A lot has cultivated in Jacobsen and the DMACC Bears softball team arriving to this point. While division one schools were calling upon the talented freshmen last season, Jacobsen had one goal and one decision on her mind.
“I felt like our team had unfinished business to attend to,” began Jacobsen. “I wanted to come back to DMACC and win a National Championship and be a leader as a sophomore captain. I also wanted to set an example for the freshman coming up as well.”
Jacobsen has certainly done her part to help the Bears arrive on the national scene in 2018. The DMACC ace has accumulated a perfect 23-0 record with 251 strikeouts in just over 133 innings of work. Jacobsen has not allowed a double, triple, or a home run all season long giving opposing offenses a mere batting average of .083.
The Bears will bring their 44-0 record into their national tournament opener this afternoon against the number 16 seeded Mott Community College Bears of Flint, Michigan. Mott CC enters the national tournament with a record of 30-15 overall. First pitch this afternoon from Traceway Park in Clinton MS is set 1:30 p.m.
