Holy Cross Announces 2019 Softball Schedule
WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross softball head coach Jen Lapicki has announced the team’s schedule for the 2019 season. The 50-game slate features three early-season tournaments and 17 home games.
“I am excited to announce our 2019 season schedule,” Lapicki said. “We will be playing a diverse and incredibly talented group of teams that will challenge us early, while simultaneously preparing us for our competitive Patriot League schedule. We have made incredible gains this fall and I am looking forward to watching our team go out and compete, with the ultimate goal of a Patriot League Championship.
The Crusaders will open the season at the Madeira Beach Invitational in Madeira Beach, Fla. taking on teams like Quinnipiac, Drexel, and Butler to name a few. Over spring break, the squad will head back to Florida for the USF Under Armour Showcase from March 8 – 10, to face teams from Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Tennessee. They will wrap up tournament play at the St. John’s University Invite on March 16 and 17 with games scheduled against St. John’s, Wagner, and Hofstra who finished last season ranked as the No. 24 team in the country.
Holy Cross will play its first home games of the season on March 20 with a double header against Stony Brook. Patriot League play begins immediately after that with three games at Army over the weekend of March 23.
A few out-of-conference highlights include a double-header against Maine on April 18, a single game at Boston College on April 23, and a double-header at home against Hartford on May 1.
The Patriot League tournament will begin on May 9 hosted by the No. 1 seed featuring the top four teams in the conference.
