(Editor's note: DCC Athletics release)
GLENDIVE - For the third consecutive year, the Dawson Community College softball program has been nationally ranked -- this time No. 21. The NJCAA released its Division II preseason rankings on January 19 with Phoenix College in Arizona leading the way at the number one spot.
It was in 2019 DCC softball received their program’s first ever national ranking during the season at No. 17. In the 2020 season they were ranked No. 1 in the preseason, but didn’t get a chance to showcase their talents due to the Covid pandemic.
“Being nationally ranked means that the hard work and dedication to DCC Softball by our players and coaches has paid off," head coach Jim LeProwse said. "We have been able to guide our program in a positive direction and it is paying off big time for us. It is exciting for DCC as a whole, and definitely the Glendive community. It puts small town rural Montana on the map on a large scale.”
