OJC to Host Region IX Women’s Basketball Tournament


Otero Junior College will be hosting the Women’s Basketball Region IX tournament on campus this season. The competition will begin on Thursday April 8 and conclude with the championship game on Saturday April 10. The OJC Women’s Basketball team will play their first game at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday April 8.

The Otero Women’s team earned the number 1 seed in the south region and with that, the honor to host this tournament. Games that will take place this weekend will determine who Otero’s first opponent will be. This tournament is single elimination, so teams must win to be able to advance. The tournament will conclude with an awards presentation that will take place after the championship game on Saturday April 10 at 4 p.m.

Chris Carrillo, athletic director, noted, “OJC is very excited to be able to host the Region IX Women’s Basketball tournament and even more excited about how well our student-athletes have done in this unprecedented season. We have a great group of athletes who not only excel on the court, but also in the classroom. They have a lot to be proud of.”

Fans will be allowed into the gym on a limited basis. At this time, 250 individuals can be in attendance per game. The gym will be cleared between each game for cleaning and disinfecting purposes. OJC’s athletics team is working on the logistics and the protocols that will need to be followed. Please check our social media sites for updates on these procedures and for more details.
