Texas A&M Aggies 2017 Season

It was a good season for head coach Jo Evans and Texas A&M finishing the year with a record of 47-13 overall, 16-7 in the SEC, 31-6 at home, 11-4 away and 16-10 against Top 25 teams.

The Aggies have all sides of the ball covered with speed, power hitting and pitching. They lead the SEC in doubles with 92 and home runs with 60 this season. Lead by Riley Sartain .350 BA,13 home runs, Tori Vidales .298 BA, 17 home runs, Keeli Milligan .319 BA, Kaitlyn Alderink .317 BA, and Ashley Walters .315 BA.

The Aggies also had things covered on the defensive side finishing 3rd in the SEC in fielding percentage .977 and committing only 39 errors. Pitching duties were handeled by hitting pitcher (.286 BA) Samantha Show, 2.20 ERA and 19-7 record, Trinity Harrington 2.13 ERA, 14-4 and Lexi Smith 1.63 ERA, 12-1.

The team also made a deep run in to the playoffs opening with wins against Texas Southern 14-0 (5-innings), Texas State 3-1 and Texas 3-1 in the College Station Regional. From there they moved on to the Knoxville Super Regionals opening with a loss to host team Tennessee 1-8 before winning their next two games by scores of 6-5 and 5-3 to move on to the WCWS. The road ended for them once they got to the WCWS though with losses to Florida 0-8 (5-innings) and UCLA 2-8 to end their season.

Look for good things from Texas A&M for the next several years with most of their starting players being, freshmen, sophomores and juniors with lots of ball playing left ahead for them.
