The Drake softball team will be battling for seeding in the upcoming Missouri Valley Conference tournament when they host Wichita State in a three game series beginning on Saturday. The Bulldogs are 11-9 in the league race and currently sit in fourth place.
Drake coach Rich Calvert says 3 through 7 is up for grabs and you could finish high or drop to the bottom. A year ago, rain prevented the Bulldogs from playing for a spot in the conference tournament. They had their last game canceled and they didn’t have a chance to get the last spot as Indiana State finished percentage points above them.
Calvert says the Bulldogs are happy to already have a spot locked up, as they have since been able to play for seeding. The Bulldogs are 24-23 overall.
