Not only has there been great success on the field but the Softball program has also been carrying their load in the classroom as well as 15 of the 17 players on the roster are currently carrying a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0 and as a team currently carrying a 3.54 GPA.  Time and time again we see that there is a correlation to success in the classroom with success out on the field of competition.

We wish team and their coaching staff safety and great success when they head out to Utah for the National Championship, May 18th – 21st.  As soon as seedings and game times are released by the NJCAA we will make that available to all the Bulldog fans.  Stay tuned as your GMC Bulldogs go west to compete with the best!
