The Quinnipiac Bobcats will open their 55 game 2016 softball season on the weekend of February 19 indoors at the Illinois-Chicago tournament, playing six games. On the weekend of February 26, QU will travel to Hampton, Virginia to play a five game tournament. Then it's off to Florida for a couple weeks beginning March 11 where the Bobcats will play in two of South Florida's famous tournaments, including one hosted by the venerable Michele Smith.
Hoping for a warm El Nino early spring, Quinnipiac will open home play with a three game series vs. the Maine Bears on March 25 and 26. They will open MAAC play also at home, with a pair of doubleheaders vs. Canisius and Niagara on April 2 and 3. QU will close their regular season with a conference matchup at Rider on May 7. The Bobcats will have ten home dates this coming season.
