Kentucky's softball team received an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive season. The No. 14-seeded Wildcats will host a double-elimination regional that includes James Madison, DePaul and Ohio.
The Lexington Regional, which will run Friday through Sunday at John Cropp Stadium, will start with James Madison facing DePaul at 5:30 p.m. Friday. UK's opening matchup with Ohio will follow at 7:30 p.m.
UK (44-15) is having its best season in program history, setting a school record for wins in a season. The Cats reached the finals of the SEC Tournament before losing to Georgia.
The winner of the Lexington Regional will advance to a Super Regional against the winner of the Los Angeles Regional, which includes No. 3 seed UCLA.
