PELLA--Central College will play host to an NCAA Division III softball regional Friday through Sunday at the A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex field. The 62-team field was announced Monday morning by the NCAA.

It's a record 26th NCAA tournament appearance for the Dutch (30-10), who will take on North Central (Ill.) (29-11). Iowa Conference tourney champ Luther College (30-6) will meet Washington-St. Louis (Mo.) (30-15) in the double-elimination regional.
