Head Coach Darin Monroe has tallied 104 wins in his first three seasons at the helm and has led the Golden Eagles to the NJCAA tournament in two straight seasons. In 2014 the Golden Eagles won the first ever NJCAA championship for softball at RVC and set a program single-season record with 42 wins. 

Home games are played at the Mulford Campus on a field that was just built in 2003.  The outdoor facilities consist of four outdoor batting cages, brick dugouts, and press boxes.  The indoor facilities include a 4,300 seat arena which has two drop down batting cages, as well as a moveable netting system and a student-athlete study lounge.

About Region IV

RVC plays in the highly competitive Region 4, which consists of 24 junior colleges in Northern Illinois as well as Madison in Wisconsin.
