The Mississippi House of Representatives recognized the Lady Bobcats for winning the MACJC’s first softball national championship. Jones posted a 54-3 record as it captured the 2018 World Series.

Head coach Chris Robinson’s Lady Bobcats are the preseason No. 1 team this season. They will open play next weekend in the Sun Chief Classic in Gulf Shores, Ala.

It was the third time for a Jones team to be honored by state officials at the Capitol.
