Bulls headed to Tallahassee for NCAA Softball Regional

Softball earns NCAA bid

TAMPA, FL — The USF softball team is headed to the Tallahassee regional for the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Bulls will face South Carolina in the opening game of the regional on Friday, May 20, at noon.

The Bulls’ first round opponent will be a familiar face as the Gamecocks and Bulls opened the season against each other in the USF-Wilson DeMarini Tournament in Tampa. South Carolina would come out victorious in that matchup, earning a 7-1 victory. Cassidy Boyle drove in the lone run for USF in that first meeting.

USF is no stranger to a Florida State regional as Ken Eriksen took his 2014 squad to FSU for that year’s tournament. USF would advance to the championship game of the regional after defeating South Carolina twice. This is the Bulls fourth Tallahassee Regional appearance in program history.

No. 8 Florida State is paired with Kentucky for Super Regionals. Should the Bulls advance out of Tallahassee, they will face the winner of the Lexington regional in the next round.

The Bulls advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in the last five years. Under head coach Ken Eriksen, the Bulls have made 13 tournament appearances, including two Super Regional appearances and one Women’s College World Series appearance. The Bulls are 23-23 in the NCAA Tournament and 6-6 in Tallahassee.

The NCAA tournament begins May 20 at various campus sites across the nation. The Women’s College World Series takes place June 2-8 in Oklahoma City, Okla. at the Hall of Fame Stadium.
