The Road To OKC Begins Here

About 200 well-wishers were on hand Wednesday afternoon to send off the Longwood University softball team as they boarded the bus to the Knoxville Regional in the NCAA Division I Softball Tournament. The Lancers will play regional host, and tournament No. 7 seed, Tennessee on Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the double-elimination tournament. The game will follow the opening contest between ACC Tournament champion NC State and Colonial Athletic Association runner-up James Madison. The Lancers earned their spot in the tournament by winning the Big South Conference Softball Tournament last Sunday afternoon.
