2020 Emory Softball Schedule

The Emory softball team has released its 2020 schedule.  Among the Eagles' 38 scheduled contests are 17 home games, 12 of which will be against University Athletic Association schools.

Second-year Head Coach Adrianna Baggetta and her squad face an impressive array of opponents with seven foes on this year's docket ending up among the top 15 in the final National Fastpitch Coaches Association final Top 25 Poll and 11 that advanced to the NCAA D-III Tournament.

Emory will open the campaign on Feb. 21 with a twinbill at South Region opponent Piedmont College.  The Lions closed out the 2019 season with an overall slate of 31-12 with their year ending against Emory in a winner-take-at contest at the NCAA Demorest Regional.  The Eagles play their home opener, while showing off their renovated facility, on Sunday, Feb. 23, when they welcome Birmingham Southern to Atlanta.  The Panthers compiled an impressive ledger of 37-5 last year, earning an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament following a championship effort in the Southern Athletic Association Tournament.  BSC ended up ranked 14th in the final NFCA Poll.  A trip to Raleigh, North Carolina, on Feb. 29 to compete in the William Peace Triangle Classic will see Emory battle Lynchburg and Christopher Newport, with both of those programs advancing to the postseason while ending ranked 10th and 15th, respectively.

After a home doubleheader against Covenant College on March 3, Emory embarks on a trip to Tucson, Arizona to take part in the talent-packed Leadoff Classic, Mar. 6-8.   The Eagles will play six games over a three-day stretch with five of the opposing squads having earned their way into the postseason a year ago – St. Benedict, East Texas Baptist University, St. Thomas (MN), Linfield, and Saint John Fisher. Following the completion of the Leadoff Classic, Emory will remain in Tucson and square off against defending D-III national champion on March 10.  The Bulldogs defeated Emory in last season's NCAA Championship series.

Upon returning back to Georgia, the Eagles will play a single game at Berry on Mar. 17 before taking on University Athletic Association competition in 16 of their last 17 regular-season contests. Emory has back-to-back weekends of home conference play starting with Case Western Reserve (Mar. 27-29) and Brandeis (Apr. 3-5) before hitting the road for four-game series at Carnegie Mellon (Apr. 10-12) and New York University (Apr. 17-19).  Emory wraps up the season the weekend of Apr. 24-26 with home series against Washington University.

The Eagles finished 2019 with an overall record of 39-14.
