LC to Host NCAA Division III Softball Regional

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010


PINEVILLE - For the first time in three years, Louisiana College will play host to an NCAA Division III Softball Regional. A trip to the Division III World Series will be on the line starting Friday at noon when Louisiana College, currently ranked No. 1 in the nation, plays host to five other teams in a three-day tournament. Admission will be $5 for general admission and $12 for seat backs, daily. No three-day passes will be issued. All LC games will be carried live on KZLC Louisiana College’s radio station 95.5 FM. Also, the LC athletics web site will feature a tournament central page where fans can get live updates throughout the tournament.

LC should have little trouble recognizing its opponents in this year’s regional as three of the five visiting teams in the six-team regional hail not only from the Lady Wildcats’ home conference, the American Southwest Conference, but also from Louisiana College’s home Division.

The three-day tournament will begin at noon on Friday with the host team taking on La Verne in game one. Texas-Tyler and Southwestern will follow at 2 p.m. in game two and Mississippi College and East Texas Baptist at 4 p.m. in game three.

The losers of games one and two will square off in an elimination game at 6 p.m. in the fourth and final game of the first day. Day two will start at noon with the LC-La Verne winner taking on the loser of the Mississippi College-East Texas Baptist game. The winners of the Texas-Tyler-Southwestern and MC-ETBU games will play at 2 p.m. with the remainder of the weekend’s schedule being dependant upon the outcomes of the first six games.
