Jerell Belcher (left) and Justin Henry are the lone holdovers from last season’s fifth place NJCAA squad. They welcome new coach Tyson Springer as they look to become the 20th and 21st All Americans in ECC’s history

The National Junior College Athletic Association snuck in its national championships just before the country closed down. Ellsworth Community College finished in the top-five for the second-straight season.

A month later, ECC had a new head coach. Tyson Springer was hired away from Hastings College in Nebraska in April. It marked his return to the NJCAA. Not long after, the summer tournament season – prime recruiting time – was restricted. The good news is those in the room now will maintain two years of eligibility without using a redshirt.
