Regent Law Softball Team Takes 2nd place at UVA National Tournament

The rainy weekend of April 4-6 brought two softball teams from Regent Law to Charlottesville, VA, to compete in the 25th Annual Virginia Law Softball Invitational. Over 100 other teams from law schools around the country came out for what has become a highly-anticipated event.

Thirteen Regent students on the men’s team leveled three teams on Saturday to emerge the #1 seed. Ohio State, 18-3; George Washington University (Blue), 27-1; and Washington University, 26-1. On Sunday, they beat George Washington University (Gold) and University of South Carolina before losing the championship to UVA Gold.

This is the second year that the men’s team has contended with reigning champs UVA Gold for first place. Last year, UVA dubbed the battle that ended 9-8, “UVA v. God.” There’s no doubt they felt the same pressure this year; like the rain, Regent’s force was non-stop and the UVA squad narrowly escaped in a 7-6 victory.

For the first year, Regent also entered a co-ed team. Led by Captain Pete Griffith (2L), this team played hard on Saturday, defeating NYU and Georgetown. They lost their third game to Florida Coastal, who went on to win the championship for the second year in a row.

Regent co-ed was the top seeded #2 team for Sunday’s rounds, but rain forced tournament officials to limit play to the #1 seeds. This, surely, was a lucky turn of events for Harvard, who was set to face the Regent powerhouse on Sunday.

Another trophy stands among those recently added to the Regent collection showing the brains AND brawn of Regent Law. Way to go teams!
