Yavapai Roughriders come home as National Champs!
Yavapai College’s baseball team returned to campus Sunday evening, after capturing the program’s fourth national championship in the 2016 JUCO World Series in Grand Junction, Colorado.
The Roughriders beat No. 2-ranked San Jacinto North (Texas), 5-2, for the title.
It is the Roughriders first National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) D-I national championship since 1993. They also claimed the crown in 1975 and 1977, and it was Yavapai’s ninth appearance at nationals.
