COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Coming off the Aggies’ 18th consecutive NCAA Regional appearance, Texas A&M softball head coach Jo Evans announced the upcoming slate for the 2020 campaign. The season is highlighted by three home non-conference tournaments, as well as 30 games against teams that made the NCAA Tournament a year ago.
“I’m looking forward to the 2020 season and the opportunity we have to host teams from so many different regions across the country and to share the experience of playing in Davis Diamond,” Evans said. “We have a balance of teams we are familiar with and others that are new to our schedule. As always, it will be a challenging schedule with plenty of opportunities to play teams ranked in the top 20.”
