COLLEGE SOFTBALL: City will host LSC crossover tourney - Nathan Wright, San Angelo Standard Times
The City of San Angelo Parks and Recreation Department announced Thursday that the Texas Bank Sports Complex will host the 12th Annual Lone Star Conference Crossover Tournament in April.

All 15 teams in the LSC that participate in softball will converge on San Angelo’s newest sports facility April 1-3. The tournament will consist of 40 games and allow teams from the North Division to play teams from the South Division.

The crossover tournament has recently been held in Durant, Okla., the home city of Southeastern Oklahoma State.

Angelo State head softball coach Travis Scott said other coaches in the conference were looking to move the tournament south from its previous sites in Oklahoma and the Metroplex. He spoke with those in charge of the Complex and helped them put a presentation together.

That presentation resulted in the tournament ending up in San Angelo.

“San Angelo is the perfect place to host this tournament,” Scott said. “Our fan base continues to grow, and San Angelo is a softball city. This is a great opportunity to showcase some great softball.”

LSC softball tourney coming to city - Kiah Collier, San Angelo Standard Times
The city of San Angelo has added another sports tournament to its repertoire thanks to its central location, moderate weather and, of course, the Texas Bank Sports Complex.

Since the multimillion-dollar sports complex opened in the middle of last year, San Angelo has hosted more than a dozen softball and baseball tournaments. That’s up from almost none the previous year.

The new tournament in town is the 12th annual Lone Star Conference Women’s Fast Pitch Crossover Tournament, which will take place at the complex for three days, April 1-3. The tournament has been hosted in Durant, Okla., the past several years. San Angelo beat out Durant, Richardson and Victoria to host the 15-team tournament.

At stake is an estimated $250,000 economic impact, according to figures from the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
