Weather Alters Tar Heel Invitational Schedule
Due to poor field conditions, the 2007 Tar Heel Invitational schedule has been altered, with Liberty scheduled to play just one game on Friday.

The greater Chapel Hill area received soaking rains overnight, leaving North Carolina's Upper Field unplayable, which will force all games to the Stadium Field.

Friday's action will start with Marshall squaring off against Rhode Island at 10 a.m., followed by the Lady Flames game against Princeton at 12:15 p.m. The day wraps up with Appalachian State against Rutgers at 2:30 p.m., and North Carolina and Fairfield at 4:45 p.m.

Liberty will open the second day's action at the Upper Field with two games, starting with Rhode Island at 10 a.m., followed by a 12:15 p.m. contest against Marshall.

Championship play will begin on Sunday morning with the fourth-seeded teams of the two pools squaring off at 10 a.m. at the Upper Field and the third-seeded teams at 10 a.m. at the Stadium Field. The second-seeded teams square off against each other at 12:30 p.m. at the Stadium Field, followed by the championship game at 2:30 at the Stadium Field, pitting the top two teams of the pools.
