Softball Factory Alumni On Team Rosters Entering The 2017 NCAA Division I Championship

The field for the 2017 NCAA Division I Championship was set earlier this week and games are underway as we’re sure to see some exciting match-ups and storyline intrigue over the coming weeks as the University of Oklahoma looks to defend their 2016 Championship.

The pairings were announced and the Southeastern Conference set a new record as all 13 teams were selected to the tournament, the most in conference history. According to the NCAA website, the Pac-12 had eight teams selected to the tourney and three schools will make their first ever appearance: East Tennessee State University, University of Montana and Saint Francis University (PA).

For the third straight year, the University of Florida holds the overall No. 1 seed in the Championship Tournament and will host Florida A&M in their first matchup.

This year, 45 of the 64 teams entered into the 2017 NCAA Division I Softball Championship tournament have at least one Softball Factory alumnae on a roster. In total, 78 players who have participated in at least one Softball Factory event are on the rosters of teams looking for the opportunity to be called champion. East Tennessee State and Fairfield lead the way, with both teams having four alums on their rosters.
