ASU to Host Softball Regional
Courtesy: ASU Sports Information
For the second straight season and second time in school history, Angelo State will serve as the host for the NCAA Division II South Central Regional Tournament. The event will take place May 7-11, 2008, at the ASU Softball Complex in San Angelo.
The Rambelles (42-10) have been ranked atop the NCAA DII South Central Regional Ranking for the entire season, but will need to wait until Sunday to learn if they are the top seed in the regional tournament. Last season, ASU was the No. 2 seed in the tournament after being selected to host.
ASU has now qualified for the regional round of the NCAA DII National Tournament five of the past six years, winning the regional crown in 2004 and 2007. In 2004, the Rambelles went on to claim the NCAA DII National Championship. The Rambelles are 13-5 all-time at the regional event competition and are riding a six-game winning streak at the region tournament thanks to last year's title run after losing their first round game.
Angelo State will open up the postseason later this afternoon as the Rambelles meet up with Cameron in the first round of the Lone Star Conference Tournament in Durant, Okla. Game time is 5 p.m. and will be broadcast on KKSA 1260 AM and on the internet at www.angelosports.com.
