On Sunday, Olympic College showed up at Meridian Park thinking the game was suppose to start at 1:00pm instead of the scheduled 3:00pm time. Olympic would not stay or comeback to the park to play the games. 

SCC Athletics sent all teams playing SCC Baseball at home this season an email on January 28th, stating that SCC home baseball games were at 3:00pm.  The OC baseball coach responded to the email. The games were called forfeits by the NWAACC Office. 

The Dolphins were 9-15 in the NWAACC Northern Region and was in playoff contention until a four game sweep by Skagit Valley College ended those hopes last weekend. 3 of those games were 1 run defeats and the 4th, by 2 runs.

Congratulations SCC Baseball, for the best season in 23 years.
