Campbell leads the nation with five doubles. The Kingwood, Texas, native started her career with a game-tying grand slam for her first career home run, rallying the Aggies to a comeback-victory over UT Arlington. Meagan Smith belted five home runs, and had seven RBI on the weekend.

In the circle, junior Kayla Poynter recorded two victories, striking out 20 batters in 9.2 innings of work.

McNeese enters Thursday’s midweek matchup with a 4-1 mark after defeating Arkansas-Pine Bluff, North Texas, Ball State and Prairie View.
