USD Will Host 2011 GWC Softball

A Division I conference softball tournament is headed to South Dakota next spring.

Tuesday, the Great West Conference announced its 2010-11 championship sites, and the release confirmed what had been discussed for some time — the University of South Dakota will host the 2011 Great West Tournament.

The four member schools (USD, North Dakota, Houston Baptist and Utah Valley) will converge on Vermillion next May 15-16, which is a Sunday and Monday.

It’s a big step for a USD program coming off a 21-30-1 record last season, which saw the Coyotes advance all the way to the league championship game.

Getting the chance to host the conference tournament should, you figure, give the team an added boost of confidence heading into next season.
