AMC Softball Tourney Starts Friday
A rainy weather forecast has led to a change in the schedule for the American Midwest Conference softball tournament. The WBC softball team will host Park University in the opening round, with the first game Friday now set for 10:00 a.m., rather than the originally scheduled 2:00 p.m.
Williams finished the regular season as conference co-champions, tied for first place with Columbia College. Both teams had a 12-4 conference record, but tie-breakers place WBC as the second seed in the conference tourney. That pits Williams against the seventh seeded Pirates of Park, who settled into that position after conference games Tuesday.
The tournament follows a best-of-3 format, meaning the team that wins two games in the opening round will advance to the next round. The teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader on Friday and a third game, if necessary, on Saturday.
If WBC wins its first round series, it would then automatically host a second round series next week.
The conference championship is the first ever for the Williams softball team, and this is also the first time for the squad to host a conference tournament contest. The opening game will start at 10:00 a.m. Friday at the WBC Softball Field.
