STORRS, Conn. –
UConn softball will have to wait one more weekend for the 2017 season to officially begin due to inclement weather on Thursday preventing the Huskies from traveling to Florida for the FGCU Softball Tournament.

Originally scheduled to play five games against LIU Brooklyn and Florida Gulf Coast, Thursday’s heavy snowstorm cancelled travel plans for UConn – preventing the team from reaching Fort Myers, Fla.

In order to make-up for the cancellations, the Huskies will work to schedule additional games in the future with dates and times to be planned and announced.

Next weekend, softball heads down to Chattanooga, Tenn. for the UTC Chattanooga Challenge. UConn will play four games – two against IUPUI, and one each against Tennessee Tech and Chattanooga.
