Softball to host Wayne State in program’s first NCAA Midwest Super Regional
The No. 6 ranked University of Missouri–St. Louis softball team will host Wayne State (Mich.) Friday and Saturday in the NCAA DII Midwest Super Regional, as announced yesterday by the NCAA.
The top-seeded UMSL Tritons and the No. 2 seed Warriors will square off in a best of three series with the winner advancing to the NCAA DII Championship May 22-26 in Salem, Va.
UMSL and Wayne State will play one game on Friday at 1 p.m. and then again on Saturday at 12 p.m. If necessary, a third game would follow at 2:30 p.m.
The Tritons (48-6) are coming off the Midwest Regional #1 championship with a 4-3 victory over No. 4 seed Truman State following junior Madison Zbaraschuk‘s walk-off RBI double in the seventh inning. Meanwhile the Warriors (44-9) defeated No. 3 seed Indianapolis, 7-0, to win the Midwest Regional #2 championship.
UMSL enters the program’s first-ever Super Regional on a 10-game win streak, while Wayne State has advanced to its program’s second Super Regional, and the first since 2010. The Warriors have won 19 straight games.
