HOUSTON, Texas (ECU) – Due to severe weather in the Houston area overnight and a forecast for further inclement weather, Friday’s scheduled games of the 2019 American Softball Championship have been postponed.
No. 7 seed East Carolina eliminated No. 2 seed and three-time defending tournament champion Tulsa 4-3 in eight innings in Thursday's third quarterfinal contest. The Pirates will face the winner of the quarterfinal game between No. 3 seed Houston and No. 6 seed Connecticut in the semifinals. The Cougars led the Huskies 3-2 in the top of the fifth inning before play was halted last night. No. 1 seed USF and No. 4 seed Wichita State are slated to face off in the tournament's other semifinal.
The conference office, in coordination with the University of Houston, will continue to monitor the conditions and will have further updates as they become available.
