Penn State softball head coach Clarisa Crowell announced the teams 2022 schedule that includes 20 home games at Nittany Lion Softball Park and Beard Field.
The Nittany Lions will start the season playing 25 of 56 games on the road in five different tournaments across the East Coast in a return to playing non-conference opponents after a non-traditional Big Ten-only season in 2021. The home opener is slated for the weekend of March 18-20 as Penn State is set to host a home tournament featuring UMass Lowell, Cornell and Rider at Beard Field.
“It is with great enthusiasm that we announce our 2022 spring schedule,” said Crowell. “Our student-athletes and staff are thrilled to return to a normal spring season which will include non-conference opponents and a regular Big Ten schedule. We are excited for the opportunity to compete against several quality opponents, and I do believe our pre-conference schedule will well prepare our team for Big Ten play. Our student-athletes have worked hard all fall, and I know they are very excited to get back on the field in February. We Are!”
