The JSUCC beat out four other teams including the Huntsville Cricket Club, the Memphis Cricket Club, the University of Northern Alabama Cricket Club and the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa Cricket Club. In the tournament finals, the JSUCC beat Memphis 69 to 67 to take the championship trophy.

      “We have come very close to lifting trophies in the past,” said team captain Umesh Reddy. “So this trophy pumped the team up and we are going to win more tournaments.”

       Since its start in the summer of 2009, the JSUCC has played in five tournaments, and has made it to at least the semi-finals in all of them. The club is a nonprofit sports organization. The main goal of the club is to promote the game of cricket at JSU and in surrounding areas.  For more information, visit http://www.jsums.edu/cricket/.
