Botetourt, VA---The Emmanuel College softball team finished 2-2 at the NCCAA National tournament claiming a fourth-place finish in the event.

The Lions downed Judson College 3-1 Friday afternoon to advance in the loser's bracket and to stave off elimination.  The Lions had lost the opening game of the series on Thursday but defeated North Greenville Thursday night to advance to Friday's action.

The Trevecca game found the Lions down early and unable to work their way back into the game.  Several walks and EC defensive errors allowed Trevecca extra outs and base runners that the Trojans turned into big innings early in the contest.  The game finished 9-0 to Trevecca.

EC finishes the season at 27-31.  Check back soon as NCCAA honors will be announced at the conclusion of the softball national series.
