Bulldog Softball Home Opener This Monday

Big Rapids, Mich. - The 2012 Ferris State University softball team will get their first opportunity to play at home on Monday (March 19) when the Bulldogs host the Aquinas Saints in a non-conference doubleheader at the FSU Varsity Softball Field in Big Rapids, Mich.

Opening pitch for game one is at 3:30 p.m. (EDT) with the second game to follow about 20 minutes following the conclusion of the opener.

Ferris State, which is coached by first-year interim head coach Dawn Thompson, is scheduled to play a total of 18 home contests this spring with 16 of those outings being Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) games over the course of nine doubleheaders.

The Bulldogs presently own a 6-8 overall mark this campaign following their annual appearance in the Florida Rebel Spring Games Tournament (March 3-10) at Kissimmee, Fla.

Following Monday's home opener, the Bulldogs are next slated to open GLIAC action on the road this coming weekend as the Bulldogs visit Findlay on Friday, March 23, for a twinbill beginning at 3:30 p.m. (ET).  FSU then visits Tiffin on Saturday (March 24) before taking on Wayne State in Detroit on Sunday (March 25). 

The Bulldogs were picked to finish third in this year's GLIAC North Division Coaches Poll.
