The softball seedings have not yet been released, as there are two doubleheaders still waiting to finish after rain postponements yesterday. The Rams stand at 10-2 in second place in the Skyline and still need to play Purchase to wrap up the regular season. If Farmingdale sweeps Purchase, they will hold a 12-2 record and will need Mount Saint Mary to defeat NYU-Poly in one game to gain the top seed for the playoffs. If that does not happen, then we'll have to see how the rankings tally out.

  Thursday, April 29 = First Round (two single games hosted by #1 and #2)

  Saturday, May 1 = three games hosted by top seed

  Sunday, May 2 = one or two games hosted by top seed

 

More information will be released on softball as it becomes available.
