Skyhawks Go To Nationals (10-2-2008)

After winning only one game in '06-07 the Skyhawks qualified for the 2008 NJCAA Division II Nationals in Normal, Illinois. With the ground work laid last year even though the record didn't show it, the Skyhawks went 26-11 winning the Region IV Championship and became one of the final twelve teams that earned their way to the NJCAA Nationals. Improvements in pitching and defense keyed the turnaround for the Skyhawks that finished second in the Arrowhead Conference behind Blackhawk and then won the Region tournament that had Blackhawk as the top seed. At the Region IV championship Coach Pruis was named Region IV Division II Coach of the Year and players Jennifer Lillie, Rachel Donnelly, Lindsey Coward, Lynsey Young; were named to the All-Tournament team for 2008.
