(WBCEagles.com) – The NAIA national office released its preseason national softball rankings on Tuesday afternoon, and the Williams Baptist College softball squad found themselves at the number four spot.

The Lady Eagles will head to the circle for their opener on Saturday, Feb. 8, at Blue Mountain College, where they will play a doubleheader. Williams will then host BMC on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The home opener will start at 1 p.m.
