A sneak peek at the Iona 2011 softball schedule shows the Gaels heading all the way out to Hawai'i to take part in the Hawai'i Spring Fling Tournament March 16-19. Iona will be playing the host Rainbow Wahine (a 2010 College World Series team, this will be a midnight EST start!), Brigham Young (a 2010 NCAA Super Regional team), California (a 2010 NCAA Super Regional team) and Cleveland State (winners of 44 games in 2010). There will also be a playoff on the last day. That's one tough tournament that should season the Gaels for MAAC play.
I guess a winter trip to the Islands will make up a little bit for those 6am workouts!
