10th consecutive trip to Nationals for Trinity Valley C.C.

A trip to the national junior college women's basketball tournament has become expected in Athens, as Trinity Valley returns for its 22nd appearance all time.  The 27-5 Lady Cardinals overcame some adversity this season after having to forfeit two games due to a bench clearing brawl with Kilgore in late January.  But they responded by winning ten of their last 11 games, including the Region 14 regular season title and the conference tournament.

Watch the video to see the story and to hear from the Lady Cards.  TVCC is the six-seed in this year's tourney, which will be held in Lubbock.  They will play the winner between Iowa Western and Northeast Oklahoma A&M next Wednesday March 22 at 8:00pm.

TVCC finished as National Runners-up last season, and in third place in 2015, following three straight national crowns.

They're in search of the program's ninth NJCAA championship all-time.
