T-DUCKS WIN NATIONAL BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WITH 58-57 WIN

Entering this season, the goal for Jon Felment and his Richland College basketball team was to make it to New York, where it will be able to play for a NJCAA Division III National Championship.

Not only did the T-Ducks make it to New York but they can now call themselves the 2009 National Champions after they beat Minneapolis Community and Technical College, 59-57, in the championship game on Saturday, March 14.

This is the second national championship in basketball for Richland College, which also won the coveted title in 1999.
