SAN BRUNO, Calif. — BYU softball officially joined the West Coast Conference, its fourth conference in four years.
With the addition of Pacific on Monday, the WCC has the needed six teams to become a softball league. The conference welcomes softball teams from BYU, Loyola Marymount, Pacific, Saint Mary’s, San Diego and Santa Clara, most of which made up the Pacific Coast Softball Conference during the 2013 season.
In 2014, BYU will compete for its eighth consecutive conference championship and 10th consecutive NCAA regional berth.
