Lady Rattlers Region IX Champs

Despite all the end of the year festivities, the Lady Rattlers had their focus on one specific goal: defending their Region IX title.

On graduation morning, Saturday, May 3, our sophomores literally walked across the stage received their diplomas and jumped on the bus to head back to Lamar to face Western Nebraska for the best 2 out of 3 series championship games. Otero beat Western 4-2 the first game and won 1-0 to be the Region IX Champions.

“We are extremely proud of our girls for being able to take care of business not only on the field, but more importantly finishing their finals week and graduating, all while winning four games and becoming Region IX Champions for the second year in a row,” said OJC Softball Head Coach Ben Garcia.

The Lady Rattlers join a long tradition of excellence. Otero Junior College boasts Region IX Champion softball teams in 1998, 2000-2007, 2009 and 2013.
