CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The Virginia softball team welcomes NC State for a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference series this weekend (April 20-21) at The Park in Charlottesville. Saturday’s doubleheader and Sunday’s single game are set for noon starts.

The Cavaliers (18-22, 3-12 ACC) return home after dropping a three-game series at Florida State last weekend. Junior Marcy Bowdren (Fairfax Station, Va.) leads UVa with a .328 batting average, while senior Melanie Mitchell (White Plains, Md.) is 13-13 on the season with a 2.37 ERA and 218 strikeouts in 174.0 innings pitched.

Emily Weiman has seen most of the action in the circle for NC State with a 21-16 record, a 2.11 ERA and 198 strikeouts in 235.0 innings pitched.
