UNI softball team to change venues for tournament

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

 

The University of Northern Iowa softball team had some change of plans this weekend. Instead of a home tournament, they will have to travel to a different city because of a broken machine.

The machine used to put down the turf in the UNI-dome broke. As a result the turf was unable to be laid down, thus softball could not be played in the dome. The Iowa State cyclones offered to host the tournament and all teams involved are planning to make the trip to Ames instead.

"I think we would have lost a lot more if we weren't going to be able to get these five games in. Otherwise, we would be waiting two weeks until we played again. So I know for all of us, it might not be the same to be able to play at the Dome, but we are still excited to get these games in."

UNI Will now play Valparaiso at six Friday Night.
