Lansing Community College’s stellar softball season ended Wednesday night with an 8-0 loss to South Mountain (Arizona) Community College at the NJCAA Division II World Series in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The 12th-seeded Stars, who finished the season 35-20 (and 1-2 in the World Series), managed just three hits against No. 3 seed South Mountain, putting the game away with two runs in the fourth inning and three more in the sixth to enforce the eight-run mercy rule.
The loss came hours after LCC’s dramatic elimination game win, 7-6 over 13-seed Delaware Tech, extended the Stars’ season into Wednesday night.
This was LCC softball’s first World Series appearance in five years, since making it three straight seasons from 2016-2018.
