On a day where all but two teams would be eliminated from this year’s event, Bethune-Cookman opened the day seeded fifth following March 20’s traditional match play to determine the seeding order.

Saturday’s matches all took place in a best-of-seven Baker format.

B-CU (61-52) took down No. 4 seed Howard by a score of 4-2, opening the day with a victory.

In the next match, the Wildcats took on top-seeded University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES), falling to the Lady Hawks, 4-0.

Bethune-Cookman quickly rebounded to take down No. 8 seed Florida A&M, 4-0, eliminating the Rattlers in the process.

However, the run would end for the Lady Wildcats in their next match, with a chance to advance to Sunday’s championship round on the line. A rematch with UMES ensued, but B-CU was unable to keep the momentum going, falling to the Lady Hawks 4-2.

The championship match will be televised in a tape-delayed format and will air on ESPNU on March 30 at 9 p.m.
