The Oakland University softball team defeated Robert Morris 5-4 Saturday to win the Horizon League Softball Tournament in Youngstown, Ohio.

Oakland earned an automatic NCAA Tournament bid and will play No. 9 Northwestern in the Evanston, Ill., regional at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Friday.

Notre Dame and McNeese are the other two teams in the regional. The regional is a double-elimination format.

Maci Brown, a 2020 Rochester High School grad, is hitting .243 with six RBIs for the Golden Grizzlies while playing center field and shortstop.

She went 2 for 6 in three tournament games, including a double in a semifinal win over Northern Kentucky and a sacrifice bunt as part of a game-winning three-run rally against Robert Morris in the title game.

For her efforts, she was named to the all-tournament team.

Oakland will be participating in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015.
