The series begins with a doubleheader Saturday at 1 p.m. with the finale on Sunday, also scheduled for 1 p.m. at the on-campus Catamount Softball Complex.
All three games are scheduled to be streamed on ESPN+ (paid subscription required) with free live stats available via a link on CatamountSports.com. The two teams have met 42 previous times on the softball diamond with the all-time series tied at 21-21. In each of the past two seasons, the home team has swept the series with Samford taking all three games in Alabama last season and the Catamounts winning each of the most recent meetings held in Cullowhee back in 2021. Despite last year's three-game sweep, WCU has won five of the last nine meetings with the Bulldogs dating back to 2019.
