The WKU Softball program has announced a set of eight fall exhibitions, granting the Hilltopper faithful the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the Hilltoppers’ 2022 roster in action with no cost of admission.

WKU fans will get to watch the newest members of head coach Amy Tudor’s squad, Lipscomb transfer Jessica Bush and Louisiana transfer Bailey Curry, in action along with the other members of WKU’s 2021 C-USA Championship-winning roster.

The first exhibition will be played on Friday, Sept. 24 at the WKU Softball Complex. First up, the red and white will square off against Lakeland Community College in a doubleheader.

The next competition will take place a week later on Oct. 1 when the Hilltoppers welcome Volunteer State Community College for another doubleheader.

WKU will compete in an afternoon doubleheader in Louisville on Oct. 10, which will be hosted by Bellarmine.

The Hilltoppers will wrap up their fall ball slate on Tuesday, Oct. 12 when Austin Peay visits Bowling Green for a doubleheader. The full exhibition schedule can be found here.
