San Jacinto College's women's softball team's hopes for a national title suffered a blow Thursday with a 5-2 loss to Wallace State Community College. Uncharacteristic of this San Jac bunch, several errors led to three early runs as WSCC jumped out to a 5-0 lead after three innings in the second round of the 2008 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I Fast Pitch Softball National Championship.

"We fell behind so quickly that we lost a lot of momentum," said San Jac head coach Kelly Saenz. "Between us falling behind so early and all the defensive errors, we made it a difficult game for ourselves."

On the offensive end San Jac was able to get runners on base in almost every inning but it wasn't until the sixth that they were finally able to drive in two runs. Unfortunately for San Jac it wasn't enough for them to close the gap and the score would remain 5-2 in favor of WSCC.

The national championship is double elimination and San Jac's hopes for a national title remain alive. San Jac will face McLennan Community College Friday at the Plant City Stadium and Randy L. Larson Four-Plex. For a complete 2008 NJCAA Division I Fast Pitch National Championship bracket and updates, please visit
