LOGAN, Utah - Utah State softball (8-36, 2-10 WAC) will turn its attention back to Western Athletic Conference action as it prepare to welcome Louisiana Tech to Johnson Field for a three-game weekend series. The Lady Techsters enter the series with a 6-6 mark in WAC games to go along with a 21-20 overall record on the season.
This weekend's series will get underway on Friday, April 19 with a doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. The second game of the day is set to start approximately at 4 p.m.
USU is looking to rebound in WAC play as it dropped a three-games last week to Seattle U in Seattle. This weekend's series will be the final mathcup between the two conference foes who have been meeting every season since the Aggies joined the WAC in 2005-06.
Helping to lead Utah State will be junior utility player Kassandra Uchida, who has been swinging a hot-bat as of late. The junior is touting the second-highest batting average for her squad in conference games, with a. 333 average at the plate.
In the circle, USU will look to senior pitcher Mandy Harmon who is holding opponents to a .131 batting average against her which is the lowest in the league.
The Aggies will wrap-up their three-game homestand with the Lady Techsters on Saturday, April 20, action is set to get underway at 12 p.m. Saturday will also be highlighted with special events in support of the cure of breast cancer, as Utah State has partnered with Swing For Life to help raise awareness and funds in support of breast cancer research and services.
