Georgia softball No. 11 overall seed in NCAA Tournament, regional host

Georgia softball will host an NCAA Regional again this year as the No. 11 overall national seed.

The Bulldogs will host a regional for the second year in a row, the first time that has happened since they hosted in 2014-2016. They start Friday against UNCW, with Liberty and Charlotte also competing against Jack Turner.

The Athens Regional will be combined with the Los Angeles Regional for the super-regional round. That region is led by national No. 6 seed UCLA, along with Grand Canyon, San Diego State and Virginia Tech.

This is Georgia’s 23rd consecutive NCAA tournament, not including the canceled 2020 season. Georgia advanced to last year’s super-regional rounds. The Bulldogs have advanced to the Women’s College World Series five times, the last in 2021, and have never taken home the title.

The Bulldogs (39-17) lost to second-seeded Florida in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament.
