Penn State Softball Releases Its 2017 Schedule

Penn State released its softball schedule for the 2017 season on Thursday. The Nittany Lions will be on the road for several weeks before finally returning to the Nittany Lion Softball Park in mid-March.

The Nittany Lions will begin their season at the LSU Tiger Classic in Baton Rouge with games against LSU, McNeese State, and Oklahoma State. They continue the stretch of road tournaments through the next couple of weeks until it’s softball weather up in Happy Valley.

The first home game of the season will be at Beard Field on March 12 with a doubleheader against St. Francis. Penn State will also host Robert Morris and Bucknell for mid-week doubleheaders in the non-conference schedule.

Penn State begins Big Ten play on March 24 against Michigan in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines have made it to three of the last four Women’s College World Series and the Nittany Lions haven’t taken a game from them in the last several years.

In the Big Ten, Penn State will host Indiana, Ohio State, Rutgers, and Minnesota.. The conference schedule will feature four NCAA Tournament teams from last season in the eight series the Nittany Lions will play.

The season concludes at the Big Ten Tournament in Ann Arbor from May 11-13. If Penn State is to make its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2011, they will play a double-elimination series with three other teams from May 18-20.
