ENID, Okla. – The Jones County Junior College Bobcats enjoyed a day off here Sunday during the NJCAA Division II World Series.
But they managed to find themselves several things to do.
The Bobcats attended an 8-and-under youth baseball game, featuring the Enid Astros, the team serving as JCJC’s host for World Series week. The Bobcats watched and cheered the Astros on to a victory over the Rangers.
The team then attended a movie together before heading to the home of Steve Goeke, one of the coaches of the Astros, for a cookout Sunday evening.
But on Monday it’s back to business for head coach Christian Ostrander’s team.
The Bobcats, rated No. 6, take on the top-ranked Heartland Community College (Ill.) Hawks at noon on Monday in a winner’s bracket game at David Allen Memorial Ballpark. The game will be audiocast on www.jcjc.tv with Lance Pittman calling the action. Airtime is 11:55 a.m.
JCJC got a solid pitching performance from Andrew Pierce, rapped out 15 hits and played errorless baseball in defeating fourth-ranked Des Moines Area Community College (Iowa) 9-1 in seven innings on Saturday afternoon. Heartland defeated second-ranked University of Connecticut-Avery Point 9-6 Saturday night.
The winner of the JCJC/Heartland game meets Kellogg Community College (Mich.) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Kellogg nipped Cecil College (Md.) 6-5 on Sunday afternoon. The JCJC/Heartland loser faces Cecil College at noon on Tuesday.
