ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Greenville College softball has clinched the fourth seed in the 2012 SLIAC Softball Tournament and drawn a stiff Fontbonne squad for first round action on Thursday.
Top-seeded Fontbonne will host fourth-seeded Greenville at 5:00pm on Thursday. Fontbonne (24-10) suffered only one loss in conference play at 13-1 this season. Greenville (14-23) was 8-8 in the conference and owned the tie-breaker over Westminster College (Mo.) with a sweep over the Blue Jays.
