Posted: Updated:

JACKSON – Jones County Junior College's Chris Robinson has been named the 2013 Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC) Junior College Softball Coach of the Year for the second straight year.

Robinson was recognized during the annual MAC Hall of Fame Banquet on June 28 at the Hilton Hotel in Jackson. He had earlier been named the MACJC Coach of the Year.

Robinson led the Lady Bobcat softball team to its second straight MACJC state championship, Region 23 runnerup finish and NJCAA Division II National Tournament appearance this past spring.

The Lady Bobcats posted a 44-10 record, were ranked as high as No. 3 in the nation and finished in the top six of the national tournament in Clinton in May. Robinson's Lady Bobcats posted a 5-4 victory over top-ranked and eventual national champion LSU-Eunice in the regionals, which qualified them for the national tournament.

JCJC captured the MACJC state tournament in Perkinston with three straight victories on May 5-6. They defeated Holmes 7-1 on May 5 and Pearl River 5-2 on May 6 in the semifinals. They rallied from a 6-2 deficit to beat homestanding Mississippi Gulf Coast 9-6 in the championship game.

JCJC freshman pitcher Samantha Buller was named a third-team NJCAA All-American this year.

Robinson guided the Lady Bobcats to a 44-11 record in 2012, giving them a remarkable 88-21 record over the past two seasons.

Robinson owns a 139-69 record in his four years as head coach.
