PROVO, Utah (May 11, 2008) - The BYU women's softball team (41-18) will make their fourth-straight NCAA Regional Tournament appearance on Thursday, at the Chapel Hill Regional.

The Cougars are slated to play North Carolina (50-10-1) on Thursday; the time is yet to be announced. Also participating in the Chapel Hill Region is Campbell (41-23) and no. 15 seed Georgia (43-22).

The NCAA Regional selection includes 64 teams, 30 automatic bids and 34 at-large bids. This is BYU's second at-large bid, the last time occurring in the 2006 season.
