ANNANDALE – The Northern Virginia Community College softball team attempts once again to open up the 2018 season this week, as the Nighthawks travel to in-state foe Rappahannock for a doubleheader Saturday. The NOVA lacrosse team has the week off before returning to the field next week at Anne Arundel.
Saturday, April 7
1 p.m. – Softball at Rappahannock
3 p.m. – Softball at Rappahannock
With the rain and snow that came through the area at the end of March, the Nighthawks are hoping for better weather in April. Following this week's action, NOVA begins a stretch of six games in six days with a pair of Region 20 contests at Montgomery and Southern Maryland.
This month the Nighthawks travel to Anne Arundel, CCBC Catonsville, Union County and Howard before coming home to host CCBC Essex Thursday, April 19 at Word of Grace for the final home game of the season.
