NJCAA AWARDS CHAMPIONSHIPS TO PLANT CITY

Plant City, Fla. - Plant City has been awarded the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA) 2006, 2007, & 2008 women’s division I softball championships. The decision came at the NJCAA’s 64th Annual Meeting, which ended on Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

This action means that, starting 13 months from now, the 16-team event held every May will take place for three straight years in Plant City Stadium and the Randy L. Larson Softball Fourplex, on the grounds of the International Softball Federation’s (ISF) world headquarters.

“I’m very pleased that the NJCAA has shown their confidence in our organization as a host and our facilities as a site for their women’s division I championships, starting in 2006,” said ISF President Don Porter. “We have a great relationship with the city of Plant City and have been able to put on great events here before, so I’m sure this will be no different.”
