The Gulf Coast Lady Commodores won the NJCAA DI National Championship and Sunday night they were properly welcomed home.

The bus ride from Texas was 20 hours long they got on the road right after the win and stopped in Louisiana Saturday night before making it back to Panama City around 6:30 p.m.

They were met at the county line with a police escort that even included a helicopter.

When they got back to the college they were greeted by fans in front of the wellness building who eagerly welcomed their champions.

The Bay County Board of Commissioners declared March 24-31 Lady Commodores week.

It feels so good I can’t express how happy I am and I love my teammates, and we’ve been through a lot and it’s just amazing, said Gulf Coast Freshman, Brittany Davis.
