The University of North Georgia's (UNG) softball team won the NCAA Division II softball championship in Oklahoma City on Monday, May 25, to claim the school's first-ever national championship. The Nighthawks returned to Georgia on Tuesday evening, and not even the late hour and dense fog were enough to keep nearly 100 fans from welcoming them back to UNG with cheers and applause.
