Regional Being Played at Mountain Lion Field
Mountain Lion Field on the campus of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs is playing host to the NCAA Division II Softball Central Region Tournament beginning Friday and continuing through the weekend.
The first game, which will begin Friday at noon, will feature No. 1 seed Metro State against No. 4 seed Mesa State. Friday's second game, scheduled for 3 p.m., will pit No. 2 Minnesota State against No. 3 Winona State. There will be three games scheduled for Saturday (9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.) and a championship game on Sunday at noon. An additional game will be played at 3 p.m. on Sunday if needed in the double-elimination format.
While Metro State is the official tournament host, the games are being played at UCCS because of a scheduling conflict at Metro State's home venue, Auraria Field.
A photo gallery of the event has been posted at this link and will be added to as the weekend progresses.
