Hokies softball headed to Lexington Regional

Hokies softball headed to Lexington Regional

Players talked before the Big Ten Tournament of their desire to host a regional, and play in front of their home crowd.

The Michigan Softball team is hosting an NCAA Tournament Regional in Ann Arbor later this week.

FSU played a gauntlet of an early schedule to prepare them for this type of atmosphere and they finished the season strong.

The Rebels will host No. 2 seed Louisiana (50-4, 25-0 Sun Belt), No. 3 seed Southeast Missouri State (45-16, 17-5 OVC) and No. 4 seed Chattanooga (37-15, 11-7 SoCon).

Each regional is a four-team, double-elimination tournament.

The victor of OU's regional will face the victor of No. 16 seed Northwestern's regional. Of the Rebels' 37 wins, 12 came against ranked teams.

This is the second time Auburn has travelled to Tucson, Arizona for the NCAA Tournament.

"We all kind of had an idea that Minnesota is probably going to host a regional, we're probably going to go there and it wasn't that we're not excited its just it wasn't much of a surprise for us but we're definitely excited to still be playing", Bison senior Katie Shoultz said after the bracket reveal. Along with the Bulldogs and the Redhawks, the Seattle Regional features the host team of Washington, which earned the third overall national seed, and Fordham. The initial games will be broadcasted LIVE on ESPN3 before later games are designated to its respective ESPN platforms. The 16 winners advance to super regionals, which will be held at eight sites May 23-26. Also competing in the Lexington Regional is Toledo, Illinois and Virginia Tech. It's the first home regional for the Gophers since 2014. The Tigers and Bruins last met in the postseason at Easton Stadium in the 2015 Super Regionals, which UCLA won 7-4 and 10-6.
