Cougar baseball on a tear
Cougar Baseball has a reputation for stepping
up to bat against the toughest opponents. UH has once again proven it will
not back down from the plate as it continues to hold an undefeated record
in Conference USA play.
With UH leading in the Silver Glove series
against Rice 2-1, Wednesday's cancellation might not need to be rescheduled,
as Game 5 of the series has already been set for April 18 at Cougar Field.
The next series of games will be on the
road against C-USA rival Cincinnati, starting on Friday. The Bearcats have
a 2-4 conference record.
The UH women split a double header with
Louisville on Saturday, winning the first game 5-4. Unfortunately, the
Cougars came up short the second game and lost to the Cardinals 4-0.

UH Softball was set to swap
outs with No. 23 Southwest Texas State, but had to cancel due to rain.
In the last game of the series, Louisville
rallied to overcome a UH lead and ended the Sunday game 7-6, handing the
Cougars a disappointing loss at home.
The incessant Houston rain forced the softball
team to cancel its Wednesday game against Southwest Texas. A makeup game
has not been scheduled yet.
The Lady Cougars head to Southern Miss
on Saturday for a three-game conference series. The Lady Golden Eagles
(22-12) will most likely have C-USA Pitcher of the Week Felicia Gonzales
on the mound.
UH will have to keep an eye on the ball
from Gonzales, who pitched her third no-hitter for the season against conference
competitor Alabama-Birmingham last weekend.
UH tennis hits the road for two matches
against Alabama and C-USA rival UAB.

The men are still warming up their drivers
and polishing their putters for the U.S. Intercollegiate on April 6 to
8, in Los Cabos, Mexico.

pounded the AstroTurf in the Athletics/Alumni Center indoor facility for
the first practice of 2001.
