CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The Virginia softball team opens Atlantic Coast Conference play this weekend when it travels to NC State this weekend (March 1-2). Both Saturday’s doubleheader and Sunday’s single game are set for 12 p.m. starts.

The Cavaliers come into the weekend with a 2-11 record after going 1-4 at the Mary Nutter Classic last weekend in Cathedral City, Calif. Senior Marcy Bowdren (Fairfax Station, Va.) leads the team with a .407 batting average, while fellow senior Stephanie Harris leads the squad with three home runs.
