Congrats to the Lady Titans for a Successful Season
The County College of Morris (CCM) women’s softball team won its 2019 Region XIX Divisional Championship Tournament and made it to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s World Series Tournament held recently in Mississippi.
The 15th ranked Lady Titans were defeated in the nationals by number two ranked DesMoines, 11-3, and then lost a close game to number 10 ranked Illinois Central, 3-2. Katlyn Lloyd and Amanda Cook both hit home runs for CCM in the final game.
To reach the finals, CCM defeated Mercyhurst College in the final two games of the divisional tournament, allowing them to travel to Clinton, MS for the Junior College World Series Tournament. It was the first time since 1991 that the Lady Titans Softball Team has participated in a national tournament.
“Coach Greg Wardlow and his team have worked very hard with our students and our Lady Titans have shown tremendous dedication to excellence throughout the year,” said CCM President Anthony Iacono. “I am very proud of each of them and how they have represented CCM. Watching our students excel on and off the field always makes me CCM proud as I am sure it does for the entire CCM family.”
During this season, the Lady Titans helped celebrate coach Wardlow’s 400th win since joining the team in 2005. His coaching background includes 25 years as player/manager for the Kings Athletic Club of Central Jersey, a highly successful men’s softball team. Wardlow also served as head coach of the 18U Old Bridge Knights, winning two Central Jersey championships in the New York /New Jersey travel league.
CCM participates in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XIX. For the Spring 2019 season, the Lady Titans had a 42-10 record prior to the nationals. The team also won the Garden State Athletic Conference championship for 2019.
