PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College softball team will open its season on Friday, March 7 in Clearwater, Fla. at the USF Under Armour Invitational. The Friars will play five games in three days, opening with a pair of games on Friday versus Central Michigan and Fordham at 2:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., respectively. The Friars are set to start the season after their first two tournaments (Feb. 14-16 and Feb. 28-March 2) were cancelled due to weather conditions.
