Western softball hoping to defend postseason conference title

The Western softball team will open its postseason run against a familiar opponent.

The Vikings just wrapped up a weekend series with Saint Martin’s University and will meet the Saints again Thursday on the opening day of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference tournament.

The tournament will be held at Central Washington University in Ellensburg.

With a 29-22 overall record and 15-9 record in the conference, the Vikings will be the No. 3 seed in the GNAC tournament. 

Western, the defending tournament champions from 2021, will open this year’s tournament at 10 a.m. Thursday against No. 2 seed Saint Martin’s.
