There is one local collegiate softball team still in the hunt for an NCAA championship. Penn State-Berks won its second consecutive NEAC title last weekend as part of a 29-win season for the Nittany Lions.

The team begins its NCAA chase Friday afternoon in Maryland against Salisbury University.

Donna Ference is in her first year as head coach of the team. Nobody has skipped a beat.
