The Hudson Valley Community College softball team had its season come to a close on Sunday when rain forced the cancellation of the final day of the NJCAA Region III Division III Tournament in Troy.

As the tournament’s top seed, Monroe Community College will advance to the NJCAA Division III National Championship in Rochester, Minnesota beginning Thursday.

Hudson Valley was supposed to play Broome Community College with the winner advancing to meet Monroe in the championship game of the double elimination tournament.

Freshmen Tracy Chesebrough (Duanesburg/Duanesburg High School) and Jessica Surette (Berwick, ME/Noble High School) were named to the All-Tournament Team for Hudson Valley.

The Lady Vikings finished the 2006 campaign with a 30-10 record – their 20th consecutive winning season. Hudson Valley achieved the 30-win mark for only the second time in the program’s history (37-9 in 2002).
