Sam Houston, last year’s Southland Conference runner-up and this spring’s preseason favorite to win the league, started the new season with a 2-3 record at the Baylor Bear Invitational last weekend.
The Kats defeated Illinois State8-6 and Baylor 2-0 to highlight action in the tournament. Three Bearkats - Tori Benavidez, Alyssa Coggins and Hillary Adams – were named to the all-tournament team.
Texas A&M brings a 4-0 record to Huntsville Wednesday. The Aggies outscored their four opponents 33-7 in wins over Long Beach State, Wright State, Cal State-Bakersfield and No. 19 UCLA on a trip to California last week.
