WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — After registering 30 wins in the regular season and advancing to the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Softball Tournament, Purdue's season continues at the National Invitational Softball Championships (NISC).

The 2019 NISC launches four regional sites at Liberty, Nevada, Stephen F. Austin and Iowa State. All regionals are double elimination, with the four regional winners advancing to the NISC championship round held in Fort Collins, Colorado, from May 24 to 26.

One of 19 teams participating in the NISC, Purdue heads to the Iowa State regional in Ames, Iowa, beginning on Thursday, May 16, with Eastern Kentucky, South Dakota, South Dakota State and the host Cyclones.

The Boilermakers open the tournament against South Dakota on Thursday at 11 a.m. ET. The contest will mark Purdue's second meeting with the Coyotes this season. The teams earlier met at the Madeira Beach College Invitational in February, with South Dakota securing a 4-2 victory.
