Brittany Tucker leads the team in RBI with 30 on the year. Margo Hurdt is one behind at 29 while Lauren Dodson has made a recent surge to move into third with 27 on the season.

Addie Tallman has come on strong in the past few weeks, taking both victories against McNeese State last weekend in Lake Charles and going 3-0 on the week. She is now 11-6 on the year while Elena Crabtree continues to lead the team in wins with a 14-10 record.

The Huskies Mollye Mlcak comes into the weekend with a .331 average and 19 RBI, both tops on the team. She is also a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen base attempts.
