Tigers to Host NCAA Regional for Second Consecutive Season


COLUMBIA, Mo. – For the second consecutive season and the 12th time overall, University of Missouri softball (36-20) will play host to an NCAA Regional in Columbia. After making a run to the championship game of the 2022 SEC Tournament, the Tigers were given the No. 15 overall seed.

“Excited to host. This is absolutely great for our players to be able to play in front of their home crowd. I could not be more proud of them and the run we have made these last couple weeks.” Head Coach Larissa Anderson said. “They absolutely deserve this opportunity to host and play at home and make a great run through the NCAA Tournament.”

Joining the Tigers in the Columbia Regional field is Illinois, Arizona and Missouri State. Mizzou will open play on Friday, May 20 at 1 p.m. at Mizzou Softball Stadium against in-state foe Missouri State, before Illinois and Arizona face off.
