Softball Fall Tournament Schedule Kicks Off With Lady Flames Softball Classic
The Lady Flames softball team will open its fall tournament schedule this weekend when they host the Lady Flames Softball Classic at Liberty Softball Field on Saturday, while they will conclude their tournament schedule when they look to defend their title at the Hokie Fall Tournament in October.
 
The Lady Flames Softball Classic is a one-day event that will feature Liberty, Hampton, Longwood and Lynchburg College with each team playing three games. A champion will be crowned after the final game of the day based upon the best overall winning percentage.
 
The Lady Flames will open the Classic against cross town opponent Lynchburg College at 9 a.m., followed by a 10:30 a.m. game against Longwood. Liberty's final game of the day is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. against Hampton.
