Marist has added four games to their schedule, and will now begin their season on February 18 at Norfolk State.
The Marist Red Foxes will begin defense of their MAAC championship when they open their 53 game 2017 schedule on the weekend of February 24 at the Mercer Tournament. Savannah St, IPFW and the home school will be the opponents. On the weekend of March 3, the Red Foxes will play four games at UMBC vs. the Retrievers and Coppin St. The highlight of the early season, for the players I'm sure, will be an extended stay in beautiful Hawaii, beginning March 10. Marist will play in a pair of tournaments hosted by the Rainbow Wahine, playing Purdue, UConn, Harvard, Toledo and the host school in 10 games between beachside luau's!
After this distant road trip, Marist will actually host a pre-conference season tournament themselves! On the weekend of March 24, Harvard and Hartford will visit Poughkeepsie. The Red Foxes will open MAAC play on April 2, hosting Siena. They will close their season on May 7 with a home DH vs. Monmouth that could have tournament hosting implications. The defending champs will play 11 home dates in 2017.

Beginning this season, there will be a second NCAA Softball national tournament. Schools who don't make the championship tournament will be eligible for the new tournament, which will begin May 16.
The big news for the MAAC is that each conference will have an automatic bid in this new tournament, so that means more to play for. There will be some at large bids also.
