The Agnes Scott softball team won the Great South Athletic Conference Championship last weekend to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. This morning the NCAA announced regional sites for the Division III Softball Tournament and announced that Agnes Scott will face Emory at Emory University in Atlanta starting this weekend.
Emory advances to the NCAA tournament with an at-large bid as the only team selected from schools whose conference doesn't meet the automatic qualification criteria. Piedmont College and Lynchburg will also go head-to-head at Emory. Piedmont advances to the tournament after winning the USA South Championship and Lynchburg was one of 19 teams to advance on an at-large bid.
