The softball team (1-6) will find itself on the road in Hempstead, N.Y., this weekend for the Hofstra Invitational.
Play was initially scheduled to kick off Friday morning with a doubleheader against Hartford and Fairfield, but those games were canceled. Instead, the Lions will start with a doubleheader Saturday morning against Georgetown and Hofstra. The squad will then close off the invitational on Sunday with games against Fairfield and an opponent that is to be announced. While Georgetown (7-12) and Fairfield (2-5) have struggled this season, Hofstra (11-3) has been solid.
