Marshall Softball Announces Changes to Tournament Schedule





March 5, 2009

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - After a rainout in Knoxville last week, the Marshall University Softball team announced changes made to this weekend's tournament schedule.

In an attempt to make up for lost games, the Thundering Herd will take to the field twice Friday with games against Canisius at 1:00 p.m. EST and Buffalo at 3:00 p.m. EST. Because of the addition of this game the day will start at 11:00 a.m. with Canisius and Buffalo.

Marshall will still be playing at their scheduled time Saturday but the opponents have been flipped. First they play Buffalo at 1 p.m. EST followed by Canisius.

Sunday's schedule will remain the same as the Herd faces Delaware after the Canisius and Delaware game. The first game is still set for 10 a.m. EST Sunday.

This weekend's tournament will kick off Marshall's 2009 home season which starts a 13-game home stand through the end of March. Last season, the Herd only played 14 games at the new Dot Hicks Field.
