UVU and Weber State Softball To Meet in Postseason Tournament

LAS VEGAS-Monday, Utah Valley and Weber State softball were invited to the National Invitational Softball Championships after missing out on the NCAA Tournament Sunday night.

Incidentally, in the Wednesday tournament opener, in the Las Vegas regional, the Wolverines and Wildcats will square off against each other.

This is the second time the Wolverines’ softball program has played in a postseason tournament in program history.

This regional will run from May 16-18 at Eller Media Softball Stadium, UNLV’s softball stadium.

The Wildcats are in the NISC for the second consecutive year and are coming off the heels of a deep run in this tournament.

In 2017, Weber State hosted a regional and made it all the way to the championship round at Liberty, Va.

The winner of the Wildcats-Wolverines tilt will play host UNLV later that evening at 7:00 pm MDT. Also in this pod are the UC Riverside Highlanders of the Big West Conference and the Nevada Wolf Pack of the Mountain West.

The loser of the UVU-Weber State game will play Thursday at 1:00 pm MDT against the loser of the UC Riverside-Nevada game.

The host Rebels are one of Nevada’s Mountain West rivals.
