Nov. 29, 2012
AUSTIN, Texas - Longhorn Network, the 24/7 University of Texas network, will exclusively televise 29 Texas Softball games from February 7 through May 12, comprising more than 54 hours of live Longhorn Softball.
LHN's coverage will commence Thursday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m. Central as the Longhorns take on Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at Red & Charline McCombs Field during the Texas Classic.
The Longhorns concluded the 2012 season with a 47-13 record and finished with a No. 9 ranking in the USA Today/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) poll.
Anchoring this year's squad will be seniors Kim Bruins, Taylor Hoagland, Blaire Luna and Torie Schmidt. The four have posted a combined record of 136-38 (.781 winning percentage) during their three years on the Forty Acres. The group has gone 42-10 (.808 winning percentage) in Big 12 Conference action, made three-straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Super Regional a year ago. Also in 2012, Luna was a Second-Team Easton All-America honoree while Luna and Schmidt joined Luna as NFCA All-Central Region selections.
"Longhorn Network provides an amazing platform for us to share the intricacies of Texas Softball," head coach Connie Clark said. "The quality of programming and LHN's creativity to give our fans the best access inside the program is second to none. The opportunity to showcase all of our home games in 2013 is significant for everyone involved in our program and we are fired up to get the season underway."
