UNG is ranked second in the most recent National Fastpitch Coaches Association poll.

The Nighthawks (46-9) won all three games during the past weekend at the Southeast Regional at Haines and Carolyn Hill Stadium in Dahlonega. The Nighthawks edged Mount Olive 2-0 before a pair of wins over fourth-seeded Wingate sent UNG to the Super Regional. 

Head coach Mike Davenport's Nighthawks will host fellow Peach Belt Conference member AASU (33-12), which was the third seed and won all three games in the Anderson, South Carolina, Regional. UNG swept a regular season doubleheader with the AASU on April 5 in Savannah. UNG holds a 14-7 all-time record over Armstrong.

Game one, with UNG as the home team, is scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday. Game two, with AASU as the home team, is scheduled for noon Saturday. Game three, if necessary, is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.; the two teams will flip a coin to decide home and away if game three is necessary. All games will be played at Haines and Carolyn Hill Stadium. 

Tickets are $8 per game for adults and $5 for students. Children younger than 5 will be admitted for free. For more information, please visit the tournament site.
