El Dorado, Ark. (KTVE/KARD) — The South Arkansas Stars baseball team won its Plains District Tournament, paving the way for their journey to the 2023 Junior College World Series in Enid, Oklahoma. The series begins on May 27th.
The Stars is one of only ten teams out of 147 NJCAA Division II teams to make it to the World Series.
The Stars have the opportunity to compete for a national championship because of the support from the community. The community raised enough money to send the Stars to Enid and cover travel, food, lodging, and other expenses.
The Stars claimed the World Series 7th seed. They will begin traveling to Oklahoma on Thursday, May 25, with the JUCO World Series kicking off on Saturday, May, 27th.
Their first game will be against Frederick Community College at 10 AM on Saturday.
