After earning Conference USA Hitter of the Week, Kristen Glowacz might agree to the old saying: practice makes perfect.

Sophomore third base player Kristen Glowacz was named Conference USA Hitter of the Week after hitting four home runs and 10 RBI at the Cougar Invitational

The sophomore third base player belted four homeruns and notched 10 RBI as the Lady Cougar softball team wiped home plate with opposing players at the Cougar Invitational this weekend.

The Katy slugger, who was one of the prime reasons UH was able to grab the tournament title, responded to the award as if it was all in a dayis work: "I guess I did my job this weekend."

The junior, who earned a C-USA POW and the 2002 C-USA Freshman of the Year last season, said her efforts at the Invitational didnit come easy.

"I was in a slump the first couple of games," Glowacz said. "So I changed my batting stance -- widened it -- and did a lot of drills to fix the problems."

The Cougars crossed the plate 43 times in four wins, improving their record to 5-5.

They will host the UH Invitational at the Cougar Softball Field on Friday.
