The Cougars rode the arm of Angel Shamblin with her second-straight C-USA Pitcher of the Year honor to finish at the time a program best 44-18 and 20-4 in league play. Shortstop Jessica Valis was named the C-USA MVP and joined with outfielder Katie Bush to give the Cougars three First Team All-Conference performers. Shamblin threw a two-hit shutout over ECU in the title game as Houston won the regular season by five games over the Pirates. Houston advanced to the College Station Regional where they took down Louisiana 4-3 in nine innings and then upset No. 7 Texas before falling twice to the Aggies ending their postseason run.

    2008 Season
    Conference USA Regular Season Champions 54-11 (21-2)

    Houston broke through to become a national player on the softball team in 2008. Three Cougars (Angel Shamblin, Jessica Valis and>Laurie Wagner) became the first in school history to earn All-American distinction. As a team, the 2008 squad set a program benchmark with a season-best 54-11 record en route to the program's second-consecutive C-USA regular season title. The Cougars began the year with 14 straight wins and posted an 21-2 record to finish first in league play. Houston hosted the NCAA Regional and advanced with a 9-0 win over Delaware State behind a perfect game performance from reigning C-USA Pitcher of the Year Shamblin. Houston knocked out No. 24 Washington with 2-1 and 2-0 scores to advance to the program's first Super Regional.

    2011 Season
    Conference USA Regular Season Champions 44-18 (19-5)

    Houston lead the nation in team ERA (1.35) to finish 44-18 and 19-5 in C-USA to win their third league title in five years. Senior Amanda Crabtree had an NCAA best 12.0 strikeouts per game and 2.85 hits as she and C-USA Newcomer of the Year>Donna Bourgeois gave the Cougars a destructive 1-2 punch in the circle. Behind the plate,>Melissa Gregson was named the C-USA Player of the Year and teamed up with Brooke Lathan and>Jennifer Klinkert to all post double-digit homerun efforts. An early season slump made it difficult for the Cougars to win the regular season title but they came storming back with a 19-2 league record down the stretch to win their third regular season crown. Houston swept through the Austin Regional posting two wins over No. 24 Louisiana-Lafayette (7-2, 4-1) and shutting out No. 6 Texas 1-0.
