PRCC ready for Region 23 tournament

POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) - In just his second season as the head coach of PRCC, Michael Avalon has led the Wildcats to a MACJC title – now he leads them into the Region 23 tournament.

No. 7 Pearl River (37-9) faces Mississippi Gulf Coast on Wednesday at LSU-Eunice.

"I think a lot of credit goes to that first-year group last year," Avalon said. "These guys here will tell you the same thing. They laid the foundation, they set the tone for this program. And these guys had to come in and respect that. And by doing that, the bar was set high and this group has been able to move that bar up a little higher."
