Central Lakes College lost three of four Minnesota College Athletic Conference tournament softball games over the weekend (May 8 and 9) at Sauk Rapids, but the Raiders still qualified for the Region 13 B tournament at Grand Rapids. CLC is the No. 4 seed of the four-team regional, playing favorite Itasca on its home field Thursday at 10 a.m., with the regional champ advancing to the national tournament. Itasca is ranked No. 2 in the latest NJCAA poll and has defeated CLC every time they’ve met this season. At the MCAC meet, which was delayed one day due to Friday’s rain, the Raiders lost to Ridgewater, 18-13, defeated Hibbing, 12-4, and dropped games to Rochester, 4-0, and Rainy River, 10-9. The team carries a 25-14 record into the regional, where the other contenders are North Dakota State College of Science (Wahpeton) and Rainy River. It is a double elimination tournament.
