PNW will match up against third-seeded Davenport in the double-elimination event with a 2 p.m. EDT first pitch on Tuesday. The Pride will play a second game immediately following the first contest against either No. 2 Northwood or No. 7 Parkside.
PNW won four of their final six games to reach the tournament and posted an overall record of 14-24 (11-16 GLIAC) under first-year head coach Tristan Wilcox. The Pride moved up to sixth in the standings with a win in Saturday's finale.
