Although the USC Upstate softball team is set to play in the Winthrop Adidas Tournament hosted by Winthrop, the Spartans will not leave Spartanburg to do so. Winter weather and a willing helping hand from Upstate has resulted in a portion of the tournament being played at Cyrill Stadium, and Upstate will host games Friday and Saturday.
Upstate will welcome Appalachian State and Hartford to town Friday and Coppin State and Harvard on Saturday for three games each day. The Spartans will face Appalachian State at 3 p.m. and Hartford at 5 p.m. Friday. Upstate will battle Coppin State Saturday afternoon at 2 and close out the tournament against Harvard at 4.
