The new collegiate venue will provide the perfect setting for the culmination of the 2021 WIAA softball season. Green Bay, as a host city for the volleyball and girls basketball state tournaments, has welcomed our teams and communities, and we look forward to those same experiences with the state softball tournament this year.”
