ECC Sports Update

The East Central College Softball Falcons will take on the Southwestern Illinois College Blue Storm this afternoon at home with a 2:00p.m. start time. The regular season start was postponed by a week due to snow and the Falcons are ready to get started with their season.

If you have lived in Missouri long enough, you know the weather is always changing. A forecast of 75 degrees and sunny this afternoon doesn’t seem like there could be snow in the future. So come out and enjoy the small dose of good weather and cheer on the Falcons today.
