Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: a city known for its beaches, water sport and impressive resorts. It also plays host to the Puerto Vallarta College Challenge. This event has been taking place since 2015 and is a premier season-opening tournament in college softball. During its time of running, the challenge has included a number of power conference teams. In the 2020 tournament, the Mexican Olympic team was added to the schedule.
Maryland softball will participate in the event’s first session from February 9-12, 2023. Thursday, the team announced its schedule for the event. Over the course of four days, the Terps will play Oregon, BYU, California Baptist, Oklahoma State and North Dakota State.
Last year, Maryland boasted a 29-23 overall record before its season ended with a 7-0 loss to fourth-seeded Michigan in the Big Ten tournament. The Terps’ fall season continues on Oct. 15 when they play Penn State in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
