After a few days of rest, the Cougar softball team hopes to improve its record despite the tough opponents that are scheduled for the coming

Freshman Kristen Glowacz continues to be one of the Cougars' most solid hitters with 18 RBIs and a .560 slugging percentage.

The team will play host to the No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies (23-6) at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Cougar Softball Complex.

The Cougars are ranked fourth in Conference USA with a 22-12 overall record, and are 2-4 in league play.

Coach Kyla Holas' team will rely on the offense to overwhelm the Aggies. As a team, they are batting .295 with senior second baseman Leslie
Seay's .339 batting average leading the team.

Sophomore catcher Arelis Ferreris leads the team in home runs with seven.

Freshman outfielder Kristen Glowacz has simmered after exploding in the beginning of the season and earning C-USA hitter of the week, but
she is still finding the gaps and has a .560 slugging percentage with 18 RBIs.

For the year, the opposition has batted .204 against the all-sophomore Cougar pitching staff. 

Jenny Johnson (7-7) and Allison Thompson's (5-3) efforts accommodate Jamie Falco, who holds a 1.09 ERA and 9-3 record. Johnson has a
2.21 ERA, and Thompson's is 2.73.

The Aggies just completed the San Diego State Tournament with a 3-1 record, and moved to No. 21 from No. 19 last week.

The Cougars will play host to division rival Charlotte (13-11, 0-2) for a three-game series this weekend. It begins with a doubleheader at 1 p.m.
Friday at the Cougar Softball Complex.
