The Syracuse softball team starts off it's season this weekend at the Georgia State Tournament. SU will also face Tennessee Tech and Morehead State during the two-day event.

The 2011 Syracuse University Women’s Softball team hopes that its impressive run at the end of last season will carry over to the beginning of this season, as all nine starters return. Hopes and expectations are extremely high for this veteran team, from the players themselves, fifth-year head coach Leigh Ross, and ESPN, who gave the Orange their first preseason votes for the Top 25 poll in six years.
