March opens with four straight games beginning with Louisiana Tech (March 1) and then a three-game series against Tarleton State. The Cowgirls will take a quick trip to play UL-Lafayette on March 9 before returning home to host Boise State and Southern on March 11 and 12. The Cowgirls will then host Southern a second time on March 16 to close out the week of home games.

McNeese will take to the road for a three-game series at Baylor on March 18 and 19 before Southern Miss comes to Lake Charles on March 23. The Cowgirls will open Southland Conference play on the road at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (March 25 and 26) and will close out the month with LSU on March 30.

McNeese will remain in Lake Charles for their first eight games in April including its SLC home-opening series against Houston Baptist (April 1 and 2). McNeese will also host UL-Lafayette (April 6), Southeastern (April 8 and 9), and Houston (April 12), Lamar (April 23), and will close out the month against Incarnate Word (April 29-30).
