The tension was high in the foyer of the A.J. Johnson Gym at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 12, as the NJCAA went live on television to announce the bracket for the National Tournament. Several At-Large spots were on the line. When the announcer said the Panola College Fillies had earned one of the spots, the room erupted with applause, tears and screams of joy.
