ISLANDER SOFTBALL HOSTS CENTRAL ARKANSAS IN SOUTHLAND SERIES

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi softball team will host Central Arkansas in its first Southland Conference home series of the season starting on Saturday. The teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday starting at 1 PM with the single game on Sunday beginning at 10 AM.

The Islanders come into the series with a 13-5 record overall and a 1-2 Southland record. The Bears come into the contest with a 6-10 record this season and will be playing in their first Southland Conference series.

After starting the season a red-hot 12-3, the Islanders stumbled in the opening Southland series, losing the opening game of the series 12-2 in five innings before rebounding for a 6-3 win in the nightcap on Tuesday. In the Wednesday game, the Islanders once again could not find their rhythm offensively and fell by a 5-4 final.

On the season, the Islanders have been a powerful offensive club, hitting 18 home runs and scoring 110 runs through just 18 games so far. They have seven players hitting over .340 on the year and five players with more than 10 RBI on the season.
