PRESQUE ISLE, ME – The University of Maine at Presque Isle Softball team (22-13) has received the #6 seed in the USCAA National Tournament to be played at Firestone Stadium in Akron, Ohio on May 15-18.
This is the second consecutive season in which the Owls will participate in the tournament. They have drawn the #3 seeded Carlow University (16-18-1) in their opening game to be played on Monday, May 15th at 4 PM. These two teams were scheduled to meet earlier this season, but the game was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
The double-elimination tournament will feature a ten team field, which has yet to be determined based on the outcome of the Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC) Tournament, the winner of which receives an automatic bid into the USCAA Tournament. The current list of teams are as follows (in order of seed in the tournament): #1 St. Mary of the Woods, #2 Cleary University, #3 Carlow University, #4 SUNY-Canton, #5 PSUAC Champion, #6 University of Maine at Presque Isle, #7 Judson College, # 8 Penn State Beaver, #9 UC Clearmont, and #10 Penn State Fayette/RMU Springfield.
