Brenau Softball Qualifies for NAIA Championships Opening Round

The Brenau University Golden Tigers softball team made the final cut of qualifying squads for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics national championships opening round.

Ranked No. 4  in the Southern States Athletic Conference, the Golden Tigers open play in the double-elimination tournament with a four-team match-up May 16-18 in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Brenau (29-22) faces Georgia Gwinnett College (41-17) Monday, May 16, in the first game.

“The team is a little bit younger in terms of player personnel,” said Brenau Athletics Director Mike Lochstampfor. “The players have a lot of determination, fight and heart. We match up well with Georgia Gwinnett, and given the proximity to our campus, it almost feels like a home game.”
