WACO, Texas (KWTX) - The McLennan Community College Highlanders, the defending national champions, are headed back to Grand Junction, Colorado for the NJCAA World Series after a 5-3 win over Midland on Tuesday.

John Ceccoli launched a three-run bomb onto the golf course in the eighth inning to make it 5-0.

Earlier in the game, Ty Johnson launched a bomb over the green monster in centerfield and Hunter Grimes hit one off the scoreboard in left field to make it 2-0.

In 2021, MCC defeated Central Arizona 7-3 to win its first NJCAA World Series title since 1983.
