AWC Softball Hosts Great Western Shootout at PAAC in Yuma
Arizona Western College will host the Great Western Shootout softball tournament starting today at the Pacific Avenue Athletic Complex.
The Matadors will receive teams from Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Utah and Idaho through Saturday. Fans are admitted with distant seats and masks, albeit in a limited number.
AWC softball head coach Nikki Bethurum says college officials will follow state guidelines to keep everyone as safe as possible.
“The nice thing about the PAAC is that it’s so big. I mean, you can very easily distance yourself socially, “Bethurum told KAWC.” The grandstand area is easy just to put your belongings 5, 6, 7 feet away from the closest person. You can get line of sight every game you are there. “
AWC’s first game will take place today at 1 p.m. against the Snow College of Utah. A second game against the College of Southern Nevada is scheduled to start around 3:30 pm
All games are streamed on awcmatadors.com.
The Matadors will also host the NJCAA Division I Softball Championship at the PAAC in May.
