DII Softball Championship: History

Southern Indiana won the 2019 DII softball championship, which means we’ll have a new champion in 2019. Last season was the ninth year in a row we had a first-time DII softball national champion. UC San Diego and Augustana hope to reverse that trend as the only two teams in the field with a previous national championship.
