ELON, N.C. – The Elon University softball team announced the addition of a home tournament to its schedule this weekend, March 6-8. The Phoenix will welcome the field of Central Connecticut State, Hampton and Lafayette to Hunt Softball Park.
Elon opens the tournament on Friday, March 6, at 3:30 p.m. against Lafayette. The Phoenix returns to the field the following day with a pair of games against Hampton at 12:45 p.m. and a rematch against Lafayette at 3 p.m.
The maroon and gold closes out the tournament on Sunday, March 8, with a game against Central Connecticut State at 1 p.m.
Weather had caused the Phoenix to adjust the early portion of its schedule this season including the cancellation of a pair of home tournaments. Last week, Elon was idle because weather forced the postponement of its road game at North Carolina on Feb. 25, and its second home tournament last weekend, Feb. 27-March 1.
