Georgia Bulldogs Women's Softball Team to Host NCAA Regional in Athens, Open Against Coastal Carolina This Thursday

Emerging from a rugged Southeastern Conference that produced three of the top seven national seeds, the Georgia women’s softball team captured the No. 10 overall seed, and, along with it, the right to host a double-elimination NCAA Regional in Athens beginning this Thursday, May 17.

The Bulldog ladies will open play against Coastal Carolina, a school perhaps best known to Red and Black fans as the college that produced the famous line, "We need more ‘Dawgs!" Joining the Bulldogs and the Chanticleers in the Classic City will be ACC regular-season champion North Carolina and Southern Conference champion Georgia Southern.

The winner of the Athens Regional will take on the winner of the Knoxville Regional in the second round. The Knoxville Regional, of course, is hosted by No. 7 seed Tennessee. Should the Lady Vols emerge victorious from the opening round on their home field, they would host the NCAA Super Regional, but, if Georgia prevails in its regional and Tennessee comes up short, the Super Regional will be coming to our campus, instead.

First things first, though. Before the Red and Black can begin thinking ahead, they must first take care of business, so the order of the day is to beat Coastal, then take it from there.

Go ‘Dawgs!
