Softball Begins Playoff Push on Friday

Softball Begins Playoff Push on Friday

The Genesee Community College softball team will play three doubleheaders in three days beginning on Friday, with each game having an impact on a potential playoff berth for the Cougars.

Genesee will host Cayuga Community College on Friday with first pitch slated for 4 p.m. Tompkins-Cortland Community College will travel to Batavia on Saturday for a doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. and GCC will end the weekend at home against Erie Community College on Sunday with a 1 p.m. start time.

The Cougars currently sit in ninth place in the Division III Region III standings. The top eight teams receive a bid to the regional tournament.

Genesee is coming off of back-to-back losses at Onondaga Community College on Thursday night. GCC is 6-10 against Region III teams this year and swept Cayuga CC on Apr. 27. The Cougars have not faced Tompkins-Cortland Community College or Erie Community College this spring.
