After missing last year’s NAIA national softball tournament, Dickinson State earned an automatic berth in this year’s field.
The blue hawks beat Jamestown in a best of three series to capture the North Star conference Tournament title.
Earlier this week, the team learned they will be the four-seed in the Fayette Bracket and the Sky Hawks are happy their season is still alive.
“We are excited to go into the opening round of the national tournament- whatever happens from here is all fun and games for us,” head coach Kristin Fleury said. “We have nothing to lose.”
“I’m going to just play my game- and not worry about who we are playing- and just do my best,” Abi Brooks said.
The Blue Hawks’ first round opponent will be the No. 6 team in the nation: Hope International College out of Fullerton, California.
