Wagner wins C-USA award
UH outfielder Laurie Wagner was named Conference USA Softball Hitter of the Week Monday.
This is Wagner’s second Hitter of the Week honor this season and the fifth of her career. She hit .462 with seven RBIs last week, leading the Cougars (18-16, 7-4 C-USA) to a three-game sweep of C-USA rival Alabama-Birmingham and a doubleheader sweep of Sam Houston State.
Wagner smacked two home runs and five RBIs during the sweep of UAB on Saturday. In the second game of the SHSU doubleheader, Wagner hit two doubles and drove in two runs to lead UH to a 3-1 victory. She also batted .667 with runners in scoring position last week.
Wagner and her teammates will continue conference play with a doubleheader against Memphis at 1 p.m. Friday. The series will wrap up with an 11 a.m. contest Saturday.
