CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia softball team will finish its games at East Carolina and North Carolina on Thursday, April 12 and Friday, April 13, respectively. The East Carolina game will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday and the North Carolina contest will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Friday.

The Cavaliers' game against East Carolina, which began on April 1, will be resumed in the bottom of the fourth inning with Virginia leading 2-0. The Pirates have a pair of runners on base with two outs. The game was suspended because of heavy rain and thunderstorms.
