Hampton, Va. - The road to Oklahoma City started today as the Hampton Pirates softball team took the diamond.   The defending MEAC champions qualified for the NCAA post season tournament last year for the first time in 17 years.

It's their goal to return.

They are the favorite to repeat but as the king of the hill, everyone will be looking to knock them off their perch.

The season gets started in two weeks when they travel to Hawaii for a tournament.
