HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Third time was the charm for Jones County softball – but so were the first two times.

The Lady Bobcats (46-3) captured their third straight MACJC title on Monday by defeating Itawamba 8-0.

No. 4 JCJC, winners of 13 straight games, now advance to the Region 23 Tournament at Itawamba. The top teams of the four-team tourney advance to the national tournament from May 16-19.

Meanwhile, PRCC baseball captured the MACJC title after a sweep of Coahoma on Sunday.

The Wildcats benefitted from JCJC’s two losses to Meridian which allowed Pearl River to move a game ahead of Jones County in the final MACJC standings.

PRCC (37-9, 23-5 MACJC) receives a bye in the Region 23 tournament. JCCJ (37-9, 22-6 MACJC) hosts Hinds in a best-of-three playoff series beginning on Thursday.
