The Tigers softball squad competed in the Demarini Invitational March 19-21, winning four of five games.

Due to inclement weather, the Tigers played their final games of the tournament on a make-shift field inside the Devine Pavillion.

The Tigers swept Northern Colorado in two games and also defeated Northwestern and Eastern Michigan to push their overall record to 22-3. The only defeat of the weekend came against Ball State 2-1.

The Tigers will take their No. 3 national ranking into Norman, Oklahoma on March 27 to open conference play.
