On Aug. 19, the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) announced that all Fall 2020 sports would be postponed until the Winter 2021 season. As a member of the NJCAA, Henry Ford College had no choice but to comply.
The shockwave known as the coronavirus has impacted not only people in our community, but people all over the country, and all over the world. It has uprooted schools, workplaces, the economy, the medical field, and the sports industry.
Athletes know there are risks while they are playing the sport that they love. Sometimes, these risks can be small, such as jamming a finger. Other times, it can be a career ending or even a potentially life-threatening injury.
As the new year begins, that means that it is almost time for softball season to start. At the end of the 2019 season, the Henry Ford College Hawks women’s softball team finished 15-25 overall, and 9-19 in their conference.
