FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas softball team opens the home portion of its schedule at noon on Friday with a doubleheader against Northern Colorado. The previously scheduled Clarion Inn-Arkansas Invitational will now be played on Saturday and Sunday.
Instead of Arkansas and Northern Colorado playing on Thursday, the two now face off on Friday with two games, as Creighton and Saint Louis will come into Fayetteville late because of the wintry weather.
Saturday features the start of the Clarion Inn-Arkansas Invitational with a shortened schedule of five games. Northern Colorado and Saint Louis kick off the tournament at 10 a.m., followed by Creighton and Saint Louis at 12:15 p.m. The Lady’Backs are scheduled to play Alcorn State at 2:30 p.m., while Creighton and Alcorn State take the field for the final game of the night at 5:00 p.m.
A full slate of games is scheduled for Sunday. Northern Colorado and Creighton play the first game at 9 a.m. The Bears then turnaround to play Alcorn State at 11:15 a.m. Arkansas’ first game of the day is at 1:30 p.m. versus Creighton. The 3:45 p.m. contest features Alcorn State and Saint Louis, and the Lady’Backs and the Billikens close out the invitational at 6 p.m.
