Taria Page of Anchorage is on the verge of adding her name for the sixth time to the Louisiana Tech softball all-time record book.

Already on the career offensive list for slugging percentage, batting average and on-base percentage, the junior slugger is approaching the top 10 in home runs, RBIs and walks.

Page, of East High fame, drove in six runs in a doubleheader sweep of Florida International in a rematch of last season’s Conference USA Tournament championship game.

The 6-foot-1 right-handed batter has 16 RBIs in 24 games this season and 89 for her career. She needs only 11 more to reach No. 10 on the school’s all-time list.

Page is also approaching the top 10 for career home runs [she has 13 and needs four more] and walks [62 and needs six more].

She is a mix of power and patience at the plate, a formula that adds up to a .418 career on-base percentage in 128 games.
