TEMPLE, Texas (KXXV) — The field is set as Temple heads to Oxford, Alabama in the division one NJCAA softball world series.

On Thursday morning, as the team was preparing to leave, family, friends, and members of temple college brought signs and noisemakers to cheer them on and send them off in style. Seeing people show support makes the leopards more excited about the tournament.

"I had no idea that everybody was gonna show up. So seeing them here with just their excitement and cheering us on is just a really good feeling," head coach Kadie Berlin-George said.

"When I saw it posted on the Temple Instagram page, I was like, nobody's probably gonna come like it's Temple. But I mean this is crazy. Like I like families coming out people that are from the school. It's just like it means a lot for them to come support us," sophomore Kennan Nunamaker said.

The Leopards will play San Jacinto on May 20th. First pitch is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
