VICTORIA JACOBSEN | The Journal Gazette
Trine is one of 20 teams that received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III Softball Championship. The 62-team field was announced Monday, and the tournament will begin with a regional round at 14 sites on May 10-12.
This is the 12th straight year the Thunder (30-4) have reached the NCAA tournament. Trine won the regular-season MIAA title and was ranked seventh overall in Division III, but was upset in the conference tournament.
The Thunder will begin regional play Friday against Maryville (Tenn.) College (28-9) at DePauw University (31-12). DePauw and Saint Vincent (29-14) round out the four-team regional.
