The No. 1-ranked UT Tyler softball team returns to action this weekend with a three-game set against Belhaven at Suddenlink Field. The Patriots (5-0) are coming off a three-game sweep of Hardin-Simmons to open American Southwest Conference play, while the Blazers have opened their season with three losses to No. 5-ranked East Texas Baptist and a shutout loss to Millsaps. Belhaven was the only team to beat the Patriots in the regular season last year after taking two of three from UT Tyler in Jackson, Mississippi last February.
