NMJC Thunderbirds Earn Conference Title

NMJC Thunderbirds Earn Conference Title photo 5/7/2008 6:12:19 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. A week of rest paid off for the New Mexico Junior College Thunderbirds baseball team. On Friday, May 2, 2008, the team beat the Odessa College Wranglers 13-11 in the first game and 11-10 in the second game. Saturday's game was similar with a 8-7 win in the first game and a 5-3 win in the second.

Though the T-birds took four victories over the weekend, it was a close call. The Wranglers are a close second to the T-Birds in pitching ratings. But, both the T-birds' pitchers and hitters were on top of their game, and clinched their place in the upcoming Region V Tournament. The Thunderbirds are scheduled for tournament play on Sunday and Monday, May 11 and 12, at Hays Field on the Lubbock Christian University campus in Lubbock, Texas.
