The UTSA softball team begins their 2015 season on Friday, February 6th in Las Cruces, New Mexico against Montana University. The game will come as part of the Hotel Encanto Invitational, one of three invitational tournaments that comprise the bulk of UTSA Softball’s non-conference schedule.

Conference-USA (C-USA) play for the Roadrunners begins on Saturday, March 7, when UTSA will go on the road to take on Southern Mississippi, and begin what will likely be a competitive campaign in the conference.

The C-USA recently announced their preseason poll and preseason team for the 2015 season. UTSA had one player make the conference team, senior infielder Meagan Low. Low also managed to nab Preseason Player of the Year honors on the strength of a junior campaign that saw her take home a first team All-Conference USA selection, and second-team NFCA All-South Region selection.

Preseason rankings for the conference see the FIU Panthers and the UAB Blazers in a two-way tie for first place with both teams receiving five first place votes. UTSA is projected to finish in the middle of the pack at seventh.

UTSA is coming off of a 2014 season that left the Roadrunners with a C-USA record of 10-14 and an overall record of 24-30. Despite coming off a sub .500 season, the Low-led Roadrunners should be much improved in their 2015 season.
