    2013 NC State softball schedule

    RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State softball team will conclude its fall schedule with five games this weekend in the Ray Chandler Memorial Fall Softball Tournament at the Walnut Creek Softball Complex.

    Admission is free for all spectators.

    The Wolfpack will play three games on Saturday, beginning with a 9:30 p.m. contest against UNC Greensboro, followed by a 2:30 p.m. contest against North Carolina and a 5 p.m. game against Methodist.

    On Sunday, the Pack will play two more contests, against Elon at 10 a.m. and UNC Pembroke at 12:30 p.m.

    “This will be a good opportunity for us to get some games under our belts after all our individual workouts and team practices,” said first-year head coach Shawn Rychcik, who was hired in July as the Wolfpack’s head coach after eight successful seasons at Boston University. “We have been working on installing new things that we want to do next season.”

    The Wolfpack was 23-31 overall and 5-16 in the ACC during the 2012 season.

    Rychcik and his team have been conducting fall workouts since early September, including an exhibition doubleheader sweep of Longwood on Sept. 23. State won the first game, 5-0, and the second, 8-2.

    Following the weekend tournament, the Wolfpack will continue with limited two-hour-per-week workouts. After a break for exams and the holidays, the team will begin practice in earnest for the spring on Jan. 7.

    The Wolfpack returns senior outfielder Bethaney Wells, who had 11 homers and was fourth in the ACC with a .567 slugging percentage last season, and 2012 ACC Freshman of the Year Renada Davis, a shortstop who set school records for batting average and on-base percentage in her inaugural collegiate campaign.



    The Wolfpack opens the 2013 season against Georgetown on Feb. 8 at the FIU Panther Invitational, a three-day, four-team tournament in Miami.
