HICKORY, N.C. – The No. 20 Georgia College Softball team (36-14) heads to Lenoir-Rhyne University for NCAA Southeast Regional II this week, looking to begin their run to the 2018 National Championship.
The Bobcats are the No. 3-seed in the region, and start with No. 6-seed Carson-Newman University of the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) Thursday, May 10 at 2 p.m. The double-elimination bracket also features No. 2-seed LRU and No. 7-seed Young Harris College.
GC Softball is led by a quartet of All-Peach Belt Conference (PBC) players, including a first-team selection in outfielder Holland Coursey (Sugar Hill, Georgia). Fellow senior Baylee Hall (Hephzibah, Georgia) also made an appearance on the All-PBC First Team, but has had her season cut short with an injury and will be held to pinch-running duties.
The Bobcats are second in the PBC in runs scored (317) and were tops in batting average (.338) and on-base percentage (.427) this season.
