GPAC Softball Tournament Brackets out

GPAC LogoNorthwest Iowa — The two brackets for the 2015 Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Postseason Softball Tournaments are set. Top seed, and regular season champion, Doane will serve as one bracket host (1,4,5,8 seeds), while second seed Midland will be the other bracket host (2,3,6,7 seeds) for the two four-team tournaments. 2015 is the first year that the GPAC is using this new format for the postseason.

Tournament play will open on Wednesday, April 29th, at both bracket locations. In Crete, Nebraska, the Doane Bracket will host Northwestern, Morningside, and Dordt. In Fremont, Nebraska, the Midland Bracket will host Hastings, Nebraska Wesleyan, and Concordia. Games will continue on Thursday, April 30th. The Doane and Midland bracket winners will meet on Saturday, May 2, in the GPAC Softball Tournament Championship Series at the highest remaining seed. The final series will be the best two of three format.

Doane has secured the league’s first berth to the NAIA Opening Round, while the GPAC Tournament Champion will receive the second berth. If Doane wins the GPAC Tournament then the tournament runner-up will receive the second GPAC berth to the NAIA Opening Round. The two brackets will be double elimination.
