-,The Florida Atlantic University softball team will host its ninth annual Strike Out Cancer Tournament this weekend.
FAU is off to its best start since 2009, going 4-1 at the season-opening FAU Kick-Off Classic last weekend. Wins over Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Penn State and LIU Brooklyn highlighted the weekend, while a seventh inning rally came up just short against Kansas.
The Owls will face former Conference USA foe Tulsa in their first game of the weekend, followed by two games against Michigan State. FAU will play Providence in its second game on Saturday, before finishing out the weekend against Maryland on Sunday.
This weekend's tournament will also serve as a fundraiser for cancer research. All those in attendance can make donations.
