SALEM, VA – The top-ranked North Georgia softball team is in full swing at the NCAA Division II National Championships, spending an hour visiting patients at the VA Hospital before traveling to the Moyer Sports Complex for two hours of practice.

After arriving in Salem, Virginia, Tuesday evening at 9:30 p.m., the #1 Saints got some rest before waking up for breakfast and departing the hotel at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. The players and coaching staff traveled to a nearby VA Hospital to deliver flowers and visit with patients.

The Saints then traveled to the field where they will compete for a National Championship over the next five days, spending an hour on the game field before moving to the practice field for an hour.

The team will enjoy a barbeque lunch at the complex before having the afternoon off. Tonight, all eight teams in the World Series will convene for a banquet presented by the NCAA where the NFCA will announce the 2009 Division II All-American team.
