ATLANTA – The ASUN conference released its softball league slate Wednesday afternoon as its nine teams will be split into two divisions.
FGCU will have three home and away games, along with a pair of neutral crossover games. All divisional games will be three-game series’ that begins on March 13. The Eagles will kick off conference play that weekend on the road at Stetson, before coming home for their first series against North Florida (Mar. 20-21).
The next three weeks, the Green and Blue are on the road in the River City taking on Jacksonville (Mar. 27-28) followed by UNF (Apr. 2-3) to cap off Easter weekend. FGCU then heads up to Kennesaw State (Apr. 9-11) where it will take on KSU, Lipscomb, and ASUN newcomer Bellarmine. Week six is a designated bye week as the Eagles will be home the final two weeks facing Jacksonville (Apr. 24-25) and Stetson (May 1-2, Senior Day).
“I’m excited that we are picking up where we left off last year with conference play,” said head coach David Deiros. “Year in and year out, the ASUN is one of the top softball conferences in the country as we had six teams last season in the top 70 of the RPI standings. We’re anxious to get back out there and just have some fun facing some live competition.”
