HOUSTON -- The University of Houston Softball program will play an eight-game fall schedule, Head Coach Kristin Vesely announced Wednesday morning.
“We are excited to get back out on the field and compete this fall,” Vesely said. “The team has been working extremely hard in the weight room and at practice. With the additions to the roster and the experience gained last year, the potential of this team could be program setting.”
A pair of home doubleheaders and a return to the Spring Klein College Classic makeup the 2017 fall schedule.
The fall slate opens with a pair of home doubleheaders. The Cougars will welcome Blinn College to Cougar Softball Stadium on Thursday, Sept. 28, before playing host to San Jacinto College on Wednesday, Oct. 4. Both doubleheaders will get underway at 4 p.m., and admission is free to the public.
Houston will travel up Interstate-45 to close its fall schedule, playing four games across Oct. 14-15 at the Spring Klein College Classic at Collins Park in Spring, Texas. Game times and opponents will be announced when they become available.

Houston is coming off a 30-25 campaign in 2017. The Cougars, who were 12-6 in American Athletic Conference play, finished second in The American for the regular season and added a runner-up finish at The American Championship. The two finishes are both the highest respective finishes for the program as a member of the league.
