Transcript c oach Kyla Holas's UH softball program advanced rapidly in its first five years. After posting a 39-25 record in 2004, including a NCAA Regional Tournament victory, the Cougars entered 2005 having tasted success. Based on the short history of the program, Holas was now in a position to expect incremental improvement from individual players and the unit. UH, however, took a step backward in 2005, posting a 30-28 record and failing to qualify for the NCAA Regionals. Ultimately, 2005 represented the first setback in the program's history. The team out-hit and out-pitched its competition by wide margins but found ways to lose close games, particularly late in the season on the road. Six of the Cougars' final eight road losses came by one run. The team that entered the season confidently had every reason to lose its confidence in visitors' parks by May. The Cougars' season, in fact, ended on the road in Tampa with a loss in the Conference USA Tournament against top-seeded Louisville. Holas thought the team often gave road games away in the late innings. "It's really easy to relax late in the game" she said, "players sometimes think T'm invincible; I think that's a teenage thing." The growing pains of 2005 included the Cougars squeezed between four teams at the top and four teams at the bottom of C-USA. UH finished fifth in the conference with an 11-12 record. Holas took control of the program in 2001 and turned over her first senior class in 2004. She coached a relatively young roster in 2005, but the team did return five key seniors including slugging infielder Kristen Glowacz and outfielder Kim Nesloney. "It did in some ways feel like coaching a very young program again" Holas said. "But we had some senior players this year, as opposed to that first season, which helped!' (Continued on p. 136) or the first time in the five- year history of the program UH softball took a step backward in 2004-05. Softball head coach Kyla Holas watched a young team out-pitch and out-score its schedule, but lose close games on the road late in the season. Story by Mark Smith B '34
