WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel will host the 2012 Centennial Conference (CC) softball championship tournament, to be held on Saturday and Sunday.

The top-seeded Green Terror (23-11, 13-3 CC) will take on fourth-seeded Ursinus (23-16, 10-6 CC) in Saturday's second first-round game, slated to begin 30 minutes following the conclusion of the double-elimination tournament's first game between second-seeded Washington (Md.) (19-18, 11-5 CC) and third-seeded Gettysburg (20-15, 10-6 CC) at 10 a.m.

Saturday's action concludes with the losers of the first two games meeting in an elimination game followed by the winners from the day's first two games. The tournament concludes on Sunday with action beginning at 10 a.m. with an elimination game.

The tournament's champion will earn the CC's automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Division III tournament, slated to begin on May 10. The NCAA field will be announced at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 7.

McDaniel is seeking its third CC championship in its seventh tournament appearance and first since 2006. The Green Terror is hosting the tournament for the first time since hosting the first three between 2001 and 2003.
