The Lady Cardinals head south Wednesday to open the eighth season in school history.
Spain, the only coach in Lady Cardinal history, has compiled a 133-108 record, including last year's 23-8 mark – the eight losses a school record for fewest losses in a season.
Sophomores Kirsten Boatman, Melissa Bento, Diana Giordani, Alexis Jo Houston, Hailey Curl and CeTara Carter and redshirt freshman Allicia Bauersfeld return from last year's squad. Bolstering the experience level for the Lady Cardinals will be Sul Ross State University transfer Kayla LaRue.
"I like a lot of what I've seen from this team in our workouts and scrimmages."
The home opener for the Lady Cardinals is Monday, Sept. 11, vs. Temple at 5:30 p.m.
