The Georgia Bulldogs softball team was named a No. 10 overall seed in the NCAA 2012 Softball Championships and will host the Athens Regional this weekend.

The NCAA announced the field of 64 for the 2012 Women's College World Series on Sunday night, awarding the Georgia Bulldogs softball team with a No. 10 overall seed.

Georgia (41-15) will host the Athens Regional from Friday, May 18th to Sunday, May 20th. The Bulldogs will take on North Carolina (41-13), Georgia Southern (42-18) and Coastal Carolina (43-18). Among the three other teams in the region, the Bulldogs have only faced Georgia Southern, beating the Panthers 1-0 in late March.

Georgia received an at-large bid after finishing fourth overall in the SEC regular season standings behind Alabama, Tennessee and Florida who were given the No. 2, No. 7 and No. 5 overall seeds respectively.

The winner of the Athens Regional will play the champion of the Knoxville regional featuring host Tennessee (46-10), MIami (Ohio) (40-18), UAB (37-20) and Virginia Tech (40-19).

Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech both won their conference tournaments in order to qualify for the NCAA Tournament.

Georgia Tech (36-21) was seeded into the Tuscaloosa Regional and will face South Alabama (39-15), UT Martin (39-20) and Alabama (50-7).
