D2 Softball – Conference Title Watch – 4/10

Filed under: College Sports,D2,Softball — Jon Green @ 3:02 am

No one was able to clinch a Conference or Divisional Title on Thursday, but we might see one on Friday…

Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference’s Eastern Division

Kutztown and Shippensburg split on Thursday, so Kutztown was unable to clinch the Eastern Divisional Title.  These two teams are off from conference play until Tuesday April 14th.  On that date Kutztown will again have a chance to clinch the East Divisional Title when they play at East Stroudsburg.  Shippensburg will also play that day at home, hosting Millersville.

Conference Carolinas

Mount Olive is your clubhouse leader having finished the season at 11-5.  Three teams are left on the course, and all need to reach 14-6 to win the title over Mount Olive.

Pfeiffer swept Belmont Abbey on Thursday.  Pfeiffer now will host Anderson (S.C.) (3-9 in conference) on Friday.  If they win both games, they will knock Mount Olive off the top spot and become the new clubhouse leader.  If they lose either game they will be eliminated from conference title contention.

Queens (N.C.) swept Barton on Thursday meaning they are still in contention for the conference title.  They will play again on April 11th.

Limestone swept Anderson (S.C.) on Thursday.  Limestone continues to control their own destiny and gets to take the next step tomorrow when they travel to Erksine.  They must go 4-2 in the final 6 games to clinch a share of the conference and title and 5-1 to clinch the conference title outright.

Mount Olive now needs to see the following happen to stay in the lead and win the conference:

  • See Pfeiffer go 1-1 or worse
  • See Queens (N.C.) go 4-2 or worse
  • See Limestone go 2-4 or worse

If any of those don’t happen, they will be eliminated.

So after tomorrow we’ll be down to 3 contenders.  Pfeiffer or Mount Olive, who will it be?  Pfeiffer is definitely my pick to stick around.

Peach Belt Conference

Tomorrow could be the day for North Georgia as they travel to Georgia Southwestern for two games.  North Georgia is currently up 2 games on Georgia College and will clinch a share of the conference title with a split in this series, and the outright conference title with 2 wins.
