14_SB_AdamsTaylorGRU

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba  will be the eighth seed for the upcoming Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Softball Tournament, which starts on Thursday in Harrogate, TN, on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University.  The Catawba Indians will face league co-champion Lenoir-Rhyne in their opening game that Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

Anderson and Lenoir-Rhyne, ranked 13th in NCAA II, finished tied atop the conference standings at 16-6. Lenoir-Rhyne, however, is the No. 1 seed by virtue of its 2-0 head-to-head record over Anderson.
 
Lenoir-Rhyne and Catawba, who was 9-13 in the league, split the regular season meetings between the teams this season.  Anderson, meanwhile, will face No. 7 seed Carson-Newman in the opening round on Thursday. The Eagles went 11-11 in SAC games this season.
 
Wingate earned the bracket’s No. 3 seed after finishing 14-6 in the conference. The Bulldogs – whose final series of the season against Lincoln Memorial was rained out on Saturday – will play sixth-seeded Brevard in the first round.
 
Brevard also had its weekend series against Queens washed away, and finished 11-9 in SAC contests.
 
The championship’s final first-round matchup will pit fourth-seeded Tusculum against fifth-seeded LMU. The Pioneers went 14-8 in the conference, while the Railsplitters finished 12-8.
 
Lenoir-Rhyne is the event’s four-time defending champion.
