Creighton will head south again, this time to play North Texas and Sam Houston State twice in the North Texas Invitational.

Play opens Saturday in Denton with a 10:30 a.m. game against the Bearkats.

The Bluejays have raised their record to 4-6 after going 3-2 last weekend at the Troy Cox Classic. Junior right-hander Sydnee Eck earned the win in each victory, striking out a combined 24 batters and allowing five earned runs in 142⁄3 innings.

She was named the Big East pitcher of the week Monday.

Junior first baseman Jen Daro registered a hit in four of the five games, going 6 for 12. Senior center fielder Kelsey Allender leads Creighton with a .370 batting average.
