INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Catawba officially joined the field for the 2016 NCAA II Softball Championships on Monday morning as pairing and first round sites were released.  Catawba will be the #4 seed in the Southeast Region and will play in the Southeast Region #1 section at the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega, Ga.

The tournament will begin on Thursday, May 5 and the Catawba Indians (38-14) will open play at 4 pm against Georgia College (39-16), the fifth seed.  Game two of the day will feature top-seed and host North Georgia (50-6) against eighth-seeded Young Harris (32-18).

Catawba has faced each team at the regional.  The Lady Indians topped Georgia College 3-2 back on Feb. 20 and lost to North Georgia 7-0 on Feb. 28.  Catawba traveled to Young Harris and split a doubleheader on March 5, losing 3-1 and winning 3-2 in eight innings.

Catawba played in the North Georgia regional last year and advanced to the final day before being eliminated by the Nighthawks.  UNG went on to claim the 2015 National Championship.
