#2 seed Arizona Softball will host Tucson Regional

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- For a new NCAA-record 31st consecutive season, Arizona will participate in postseason play. The Wildcats received the No. 2 overall seed in the tournament, putting them in a position to host both regionals and super regionals should UA advance. Arizona will host an NCAA Softball Championships Regional Friday through Sunday, May 19-21, at Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium. New Mexico St. (WAC), South Carolina (SEC), and St. Francis (PA) (NEC) will come to Tucson for the three-day event.

South Carolina and St. Francis (PA) will play at 4 p.m. MST (ESPN) on Friday. Arizona and New Mexico St. meet at 6:30 p.m. (ESPNU) in the nightcap. Friday's winners will play at 2 p.m. on Saturday while Friday's losers will play at 4:30 p.m. in an elimination game. The loser of game 3 and the winner of game 4 will play at 7 p.m. on Saturday. 

Sunday's regional championship will begin at 4 p.m. with the if-necessary second game set to begin at 6:30 p.m. MST.

Arizona's streak of 31 consecutive NCAA Regional appearances dates back to 1987, head coach Mike Candrea's second year in Tucson. Under Candrea, the Wildcats have won 27 regionals and eight national championships.

Arizona has been an initial-rounds host 19 times, and Super Regionals six times. If the bracket holds up as seeded, the Cats would host No. 15 Baylor in the super regional next weekend in Tucson.
