SEARCY, Ark. (Harding) - Harding will unveil its 18th intercollegiate team Saturday, Sept. 28, when the Lady Bison women's softball team makes its debut in an exhibition game against Ecclesia.

Head coach Phil Berry's team will play its only fall exhibition at home beginning at 10 a.m.

"The players have been working hard since the semester started and are really looking forward to facing outside competition," Berry said.

It will be the first fast-pitch softball game ever at Harding. The university sponsored a women's slow-pitch softball team from 1981-85.

Harding will also play exhibition games at the University of Memphis on Oct. 6 and at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway on Oct. 19.
