ATHENS, Ohio – Currently off to its best start since 1994, the Ohio University Softball Team (11-3) looks to carry its winning ways to the West Coast this week. Ohio will take on No. 18 Washington (March 6) and Seattle University (March 7) before competing at the 2013 University of Washington Husky Classic on March 8 and 9.

Ohio will open its six-game stretch against the 2009 national-champion Huskies on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST. The Bobcats will then compete against Seattle University on Thursday, taking on the Redhawks at 6 p.m. EST.

Friday and Saturday will see the Green and White begin play at the UW Husky Classic. On Friday, Ohio takes on Yale (8:30 p.m. EST) and No. 18 Washington (10 p.m. EST). Saturday’s schedule includes meetings against Seattle (1 p.m. EST) and Bradley (6 p.m. EST).

Ohio has played Washington just once in program history, losing to the Huskies 4-3 in an early-season tournament during the 2010 season. This was the year immediately following Washington’s College World Series title in 2009.

The Bobcats are 0-2 all-time against Bradley, losing two neutral-site games to the Braves in 2009. Ohio has never played Yale or Seattle University.

Heading into this week’s games, Ohio is hitting .294 as a team, slugging at a rate of .557, has recorded 44 extra-base hits, and has belted 23 home runs. The Bobcats have outscored their opponents 99-55 in 14 games. Senior slugger Caitlin Colvin (Bonney Lake, Wash.) leads the way with eight home runs while RBI leader Lauren Gellerman (23 in 48 at bats) is one home run away from becoming the new program record-holder at 28.
