The William Penn softball team opens the NAIA National Tournament tomorrow afternoon in Decatur, Alabama. The Lady Statesmen open the first of two days of pool play against St. Gregory’s of Texas. The other team in the pool are Tiffin opf Ohio, Bellevue, Nebraska and third ranked Point Loma Nazarene from California.
Penn coach Mike Christner says they probably got as good a draw as they could. The top two teams from each pool will advance to an eight-team double elimination tournament next week. Christner says they have talent and as good a shot as anyone.
