COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M softball team started practice this week, getting ready for an eight-game fall season that starts Oct. 30 with a doubleheader against Blinn College.

“It’s great to be back on the field in team practice,” head coach Jo Evans said. “Our players have worked hard the past six weeks in our individual workouts in preparation for our five-week practice and eight-game fall season. Our team is working hard and I look forward to watching our freshmen compete.”

The Aggies welcome five freshmen, as well as sophomore transfer Katie Marks, to the team this year. Marks (Katy) returns to her home state after her freshman season at South Carolina. New to college softball are Abby Donnell (Wichita Falls), Reagan Boenker (Bryan), April Ryan (Keller), Suzanne White (Richmond) and Celena Massey (Bulverde). No stranger to the team, but taking to the field for the first time since transferring from Texas and completing her redshirt requirement will be junior Rachel Fox

Returning to action for the Aggies are an award-winning, eight-player senior class, four juniors and five sophomores. All-American and All-SEC selection Cali Lanphear looks to continue her record-breaking career as a sophomore as Nicole Morgan hunts for another NFCA All-Region first team award.

Texas A&M ended the 2013 season at the NCAA Super Regional level, marking its 24th trip to the NCAA Tournament and its 12th under Evans. The team also earned its eighth 40-win season with Evans at the helm, and started the season at a program-best 19-0.

The Aggies will kick off the fall season at home with a doubleheader against Blinn College on Wednesday, October 30 at 5 p.m. To learn more about Texas A&M softball, log on to and follow @AggieSoftball on Twitter.
