Softball Seeded 4th too!

Northwestern University may have lost the Big 10 Tournament, but their 42-12 record impressed the NCAA Softball World Series Committee enough to secure both the #4 seed in the NCAA tournament, and the Host Honor for the Evanston Regional starting next Friday.

Sharon Drysdale Field is going to add an NCAA Regional to its history...
NU's will be hosting two midwest teams, plus one from California in the 4 team double elimination tournament starting Friday. The 4 teams headed for Evanston, as announced by the NCAA:

Evanston Regional - May 19-21 at Evanston, Illinois
Notre Dame (38-19) vs. UC Santa Barbara (24-20)
Southern Illinois (34-11) vs. *No. 4 Northwestern (42-12)

The winner advances to the best of 3 Super Regionals with those winners advancing Women's College World Series, this year scheduled for the ASA Headquarters in Oklahoma City, OK.
