CofC Softball Announces Fall Schedule
CHARLESTON, S.C. – The College of Charleston softball program announced its fall schedule this week, revealing a challenging slate against a variety of in-state competition.
“The fall season is always important in developing the chemistry of a new team and integrating new players, but this year it’s even more crucial with new coaches on staff,” head coach Linda Kalafatis said. “We’ve had a good system and culture in place, but with change comes changes and it will be an important time for this group of players and coaches to make adjustments and learn each other. I know we are all anxious to get together and compete some this fall season.”
The Cougars get things started with a double-header at home on Sep. 23 at 5 p.m., when they will face the USC Beaufort Sand Sharks, who went 33-22 in 2016. For the next two weekends after that, the Cougars will trade a home and away series with cross-town rival Charleston Southern (22-34) in a pair of 10-inning games. The Buccaneers will draw the first hosting duties on Oct. 1 at 2 p.m., and The College will take over home field the following week on Oct. 7 at 6 a.m.
On Saturday, Oct. 15, the Cougars will head up the Carolina coast to square off in a double-header with the Chanticleers (37-22) before heading back home for a 2 p.m. 10-inning showdown with Columbia College (29-21).
Things reach a crescendo at the end of October. The Cougars will play a hotly anticipated 10-inning game with South Carolina (38-23) at 3:30 p.m. at Patriots Point, and will wrap things up with the Cougar World Series, which will run from Oct. 25 through Nov. 1.
