Pendleton Releases 2019 Softball Schedule

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University's head softball coach Tiffane Pendleton today announced the team's schedule for the 2019 season.

The Knights start the season with six games on the road starting the season at Salem College with a doubleheader Feb. 15-16. The Knights first home series will be Mar. 8-9 when they play host to Franciscan. Southern Virginia will wrap up non-conference games with a doubleheader Mar. 26 visiting Emory & Henry.

"We have tough matchups for our non-conference games this season. As a team, we wanted to challenge ourselves early in the season to prepare ourselves for conference play," said Coach Pendleton. "This will be a difficult task but our team looks forward to the opportunity to see different styles of play from these matchups."

Southern Virginia will kickoff Capital Athletic Conference play at home against last season's CAC Champions Christopher Newport Saturday, Mar. 30 in a doubleheader.

The Knights will close out the regular season with a four-game road stint starting at Mary Washington Apr. 19 and then the team will play the next day at Salisbury University Apr. 20.

"The conference looks a little different this season, we want to build on the upward trend our team started last season," Pendleton added. "Our team is young but has gained good experience heading into this season. I look forward to seeing the growth and the progression of our team."
