U of L softball hosting NCAA Regional for first time

The 17th ranked Louisville softball team has been selected as one of the 16 regional hosts for the 2009 NCAA Tournament. It's the first time U of L has been selected as a regional host.

"We're very excited to be hosting at home in our sixth NCAA appearance," said U of L head coach Sandy Pearsall. "It is really a treat for us to be able to play at home in front of our fans. This is a great regional with Arizona and UT Martin and a wonderful opportunity for the city of Louisville to come out and see some great college softball in a history-making NCAA regional for us."

That's the good news. The bad news is that one of the three teams coming to town is perennial powerhouse and No. 9 overall seed Arizona.

Play begins Friday at 4 p.m. when the Wildcats face Tennessee-Martin, and then continues at 6 when the Cardinals take on Purdue. The regional is double-elimination.
