Women’s Softball Team Ranked First in the Nation
Miami, April 12, 2010 -
The Miami Dade College (MDC) women’s softball team, Lady Sharks, has been ranked first in the nation by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). This is the first time in the program’s history that they land the top national spot. The team also is ranked number one in Florida.
“The team has worked very hard to achieve this ranking,” said head coach Carlos Caro. “The Lady Sharks are all dedicated, talented student-athletes who consistently give 100 percent of their effort. We couldn’t be prouder of them.”
The Lady Sharks’ record is currently 26-3. They are regularly among the top teams in NJCAA polls and rankings. The team recently participated in the Puerto Rico Cup tournament and went undefeated, winning 6 games and toppling the Puerto Rico National Team 5-1 in the championship game.
NJCAA is the governing body of intercollegiate athletics for two-year colleges. MDC’s athletic programs, from baseball to women’s volleyball, have all done well in national rankings over the college’s five decade history.
