Due to expected heavy rains Thursday and Friday in South Mississippi, this week’s MACJC State Softball Tournament has been pushed back two days to Saturday and Sunday (May 4-5) in Perkinston. Game times for the weekend event, hosted by Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, will remain the same.

Set to make the school’s fifth consecutive MACJC Softball Tournament appearance, first-year head coach Kyndall White’s EMCC Lady Lions (24-18, 17-7), the MACJC North Division’s No. 2 seed, will take on No. 3 South seed East Central (30-14, 14-10) during Saturday’s opening-day tournament action. The quarterfinal-round EMCC-ECCC pairing is set to begin at 4 p.m. at Ross-Smith Field on the MGCCC campus.

Saturday’s other quarterfinal-round tournament action will pit No. 2 South seed and eighth-ranked Jones County (36-6, 19-5) against No. 3 North seed Holmes (19-25, 15-9) at noon, followed by MACJC North champion Itawamba (31-12-1, 18-6) versus No. 4 South entry Pearl River (24-20, 13-11) at 2 p.m. The opening day’s tournament activity will conclude with MACJC South champion and seventh-ranked Mississippi Gulf Coast (31-8, 20-4) playing host to No. 4 North seed Northeast Mississippi (23-14-1, 15-9) in a scheduled 6 p.m. contest.

Sunday’s semifinals are slated for noon and 2 p.m., with the subsequent championship contest on tap for a 5 p.m. start time.

Admission for the tournament will be $5 for adults per day and $2 for students. All games during this weekend’s MACJC State Softball Tournament will be video-streamed live at www.mgcccbulldogs.com.
