LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The ASUN released the 2022 conference schedule for softball Tuesday – an eight-week slate encompassing 24 games.
The 12-team ASUN will be divided evenly into East and West Divisions. Bellarmine (6-31, 0-15 ASUN last season) is a member of the West and its conference schedule consists of three-game series against the five other divisional opponents and three cross-division opponents.
Central Arkansas, Eastern Kentucky and Jacksonville State — all new to the ASUN — join the Knights in the West along with fellow holdovers Lipscomb and North Alabama. The three cross-division matchups will be against Jacksonville, Stetson, and Liberty.
Bellarmine opens ASUN play by hosting Jacksonville from March 19-20 before heading to Stetson for three games March 26-27. The Knights’ next ASUN series is at home — April 2-3 against Liberty before a road series at Central Arkansas April 9-10.
The Knights stay on the road the following weekend with three contests at North Alabama April 15-16 before a return home to face EKU April 23-24 at Knights Field.
Bellarmine wraps up its conference slate and regular season with three games at Jacksonville State April 30-May 1 and a series at Lipscomb May 5-6.
BU has three ASUN home series and five on the road this season. The conference teams not on Bellarmine’s schedule are Florida Gulf Coast, Kennesaw State, and North Florida.
