HancockFebruary 24, 2011:  The Finlandia University women’s softball team will open their 2011 season in Marquette, Michigan at the 8th annual Superior Dome Softball Tournament on the campus of Northern Michigan University with a doubleheader on Friday February 25th. The Lions play Hope College (MI.) at 6:00 pm and Edgewood College (WI.) at 8:00 pm.


The three day tournament hosted by Finlandia University features 9 of the Midwest’s top NCAA Division 3 softball programs. The Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference will be represented by powerhouses Oshkosh, Stevens Point, and Superior. Perennial national title contender Simpson College (IA.) will round out the field with Hope (MI.), Dubuque (IA.), Concordia (WI.), Edgewood (WI.), and Finlandia.


Weekend passes will be available to adults for $10, and senior citizens and children 11-18 years of age for $7. Kids under 10 will be admitted for free all weekend. Daily passes will be $6 for adults and $4 for senior citizens and children 11-18. There will be 20 games total with three on Friday, nine on Saturday, and eight on Sunday. Hope and Edgewood open the tournament at 4:00 pm Friday and games begin at 8:00 am sharp on both Saturday and Sunday.


The Lions have high hopes for the 2011 season as Coach Hendrickson brought in one of his top recruiting classes as head of the Finlandia women’s softball program. The Lions resume play at 4:00 pm Saturday versus Concordia, and round out the tournament with a triple-header on Sunday against Dubuque (8:00 am), UW-Stevens Point (12:00 pm), and UW-Superior (2:00 pm).
