The Junior College World Series is now under a week away and the ten-team field is complete.

Over the weekend Southern Idaho, Iowa Western, Monroe College, and Jefferson punched their tickets to Grand Junction winning their district tournament. The reigning National Champion head coach of the Chipola Indians Jeff Johnson says his young team is ready for the challenges that the tournament brings.

"We don't play in front of packed stadiums and thousands of fans every day, so that is a big thing I think our kids have to get used to. It will be great if we can play well out there and see if we can defend our title," said Johnson.

The tournament will get underway on Saturday, May 26th at 9:00 A.M. as Temple (TX) takes on Southern Idaho in the first game of the day.
