 February 19, 2013

MERIDIAN – Jones County Junior College Lady Bobcat head coach Chris Robinson reached a milestone here on Monday.

With JCJC’s 2-0 victory in game one, Robinson reached the 100-win plateau early in his fourth year as head coach. The 7th-ranked Lady Bobcats added a 10-0, 5-inning win in game two for good measure.

Robinson now owns a 101-59 record with practically the entire 2013 season remaining. He credits assistant coaches Bob Herrington and Brittany Pigott with playing a major part in the program’s success.

The Lady Bobcats, 6-0, are scheduled to play at Holmes Community College at 3/5 p.m. on Tuesday. Fans can follow the games on GameChanger by going to www.jcjcathletics.com, clicking on “Softball” and then clicking on the “Live Stats” icon.
