Jags softball team announces a 9 game fall schedule

MOBILE, Ala. – With the addition of 10 newcomers to next season's roster, this fall will allow both the new faces and returners for the University of South Alabama softball team to gel together and gain some valuable experience as the Jags are scheduled to compete in nine games as announced by head coach Becky Clark on Thursday.

Of the nine fall contest, eight will be played at Jaguar Field with the lone road game on the schedule just a little over an hour away from campus in Pensacola, Fla.

USA will open up the exhibition schedule on Sept. 22 when it hosts Coastal Alabama CC at 6 p.m. The Jags will them host Mobile and East Mississippi CC the following week. South will take on UM on Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. and then EMCC the following day at 1 p.m.

Three more games are on the docket a week later as the Jags host Pensacola State College (12 p.m.) and Mississippi College (4:30 p.m.) on Oct. 7, before heading to West Florida (12 p.m.) the next day.

For the first time in program history, South Alabama will hold an Alumni Game on Oct. 21 with former Jaguars from the program's first 11 seasons returning to campus to take on this season's squad. The start time for that contest will be announced at a later date once the game time for the Jag football team's Homecoming Game against Louisiana-Monroe is finalized.

USA will close out the fall slate a day later with its second doubleheader as it welcomes Jones County JC (12 p.m.) and Northwest Florida State College (4:30 p.m.).
