Jackson State University Wins SWAC Tournament Despite Equipment Being Destroyed in Bus Fire

Congratulations to Jackson State University's Baseball Team on winning their second-straight SWAC Title. What makes this one special? If you haven't heard, this team came through the hardship of their bus catching fire during travel a week before their conference tournament (here). The team also lost a lot of equipment as it was destroyed in the fire. The team had to cancel two games prior to the start of the SWAC tournament. Regardless of everything that happened in a short time, they were able to play their best baseball during the tournament and pulled off a 9-8 victory over Alabama State yesterday (here) to represent the SWAC conference in the NCAA Tournament.
