THE UVA LAW invitational TOURNAMENT

 
 

Each spring the University of Virginia Law School hosts a law school softball tournament in Charlottesville, Virginia where more than 100 teams from more than 60 law schools compete.  Ever since Maryland first entered the tournament, we have been determined to dethrone UVA, which has won the coed division in virtually every year the tournament has been held.   In its second year participating in the tournament in 2001 Maryland’s team in the coed division lost in the semifinals to UVA Gold. In 2002 and 2003 Maryland’s team lost in the quarterfinals, to Georgetown in 2002 and to UVA Blue in 2003.


Although Maryland lost in extra innings to UVA Gold in the Championship Game in 2004, in 2007 Maryland eliminated UVA Gold in dramatic fashion in the semifinals by scoring 11 runs in the bottom of the final inning.  In 2009 Maryland Black again rallied from behind to defeat UVA Gold in the semifinals before losing to Appalachian in the championship game.  In 2012 Maryland Red advanced to the Round of 16 while UVA Gold beat Maryland Black in the Round of 32.


In 2012 all three Maryland co-rec teams advanced to the elimination rounds.  A photo album from the 2012 Tournament is available HERE.  In both 2010 and 2011 all Maryland co-ed teams and the men’s team advanced to the elimination rounds.  In 2010 Maryland White and the men’s team lost in the Round of 32.  Maryland Black lost to Georgetown and Maryland Red lost to U Baltimore in the Round of 16.  In 2011 Maryland Red reached the Elite Eight before losing to UVA Blue while Maryland Black narrowly lost to Suffolk in the Round of 32.
