The Hillsdale College softball team begins a new era in 2017-18 as part of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference. The first step on a journey towards contending for a league title begins in the fall, when the team will compete over three different weekends during its non-traditional season.
The action gets underway on Sept. 23 when Hillsdale travels to Heidelberg, located in Tiffin, Ohio. The team will play games at Heidelberg Saturday and then at Bowling Green State University Sunday.
The weekend of Sept. 30-Oct. 1 will see the team return to Ohio State University in Columbus, playing four games at the annual fall ball event hosted by the Big Ten program.
Sunday, Oct. 15 will see the team compete at home, hosting Tiffin University, Oakland University and Jackson College. The Chargers will play at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The regular season will get going in February, followed by a Spring Break trip to Clermont, Florida. The G-MAC schedule commences March 24-25 with trips to Kentucky Wesleyan and Trevecca Nazarene.
