The Southwest softball team, coming off its fourth straight 30-win season in 2011, will open the 2012 campaign on February 15 against LeMoyne-Owen College at Tobey Park. The schedule features 26 home games at the Buckhead Creek Recreation Center including the home opener on February 22 against Northwest Mississippi.

The Lady Saluqis will play 18 games against Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) opponents including the conference opener on March 23 against 2011 regular season champion and pre-season nationally-ranked Chattanooga State.
