Sunday, May 14, 2017

TYLER – The No. 4-ranked UT Tyler softball team will host No. 10 East Texas Baptist in the NCAA Division III Tyler Super Regional this weekend at Suddenlink Field with the winner advancing to the NCAA DIII Championships in Oklahoma City.  

The best-of-3 series begins at 4 p.m. on Friday before a 1 p.m. game on Saturday. An if-necessary game would follow if the two teams split the first two. UT Tyler is 3-1 against the Tigers this season, including a 3-2 win in the semifinals of the American Southwest Conference Championship. The Patriots advanced to the Super Regional by sweeping through the Tyler Regional last weekend with a 9-0 win over La Verne in their first game and then an 8-6 and 5-2 win over No. 5 Texas Lutheran on Saturday. ETBU was forced to play on Sunday and advanced with a 7-5 win over Whitworth.

UT Tyler is the defending NCAA DIII National Champion and is 44-18 in 10 NCAA postseasons.
