The Dakota State Softball team has been slated to finish seventh in the preseason NSAA Coaches poll that were recently released. Under first-year Head Coach Rachel Fricke, the Trojans will look to exceed expectations. Valley City State was picked first, Bellevue second and Mayville State third to round out the top three. 

DSU Softball will kick-off their season on the 14th of February at the Dome in Aberdeen playing a few different teams over a two weekend stretch. First NSAA games are at VCSU on March 21 and 22nd with the Home Opener slated for March 25th.
