TUCSON, Ariz — Arizona Softball's road to Oklahoma City will go through the renovated Hillenbrand Stadium.

The Wildcats earned a number six seed in the NCAA Tournament and will host Harvard, Auburn, and Colorado State in next weekend's regional round.

"I'm excited with the 6th seed," said head coach Mike Candrea. "This team has done the body of work and had a good, strong, finish."

"It's exciting to be able to play in front of our fans," said senior pitcher Taylor McQuillin. "It just shows all the hard work that we've done."

Arizona will open up against Harvard on Friday night. Since the Wildcats have one of the top eight seeds, they would also host in the super regional round the following weekend.
