Warm-up is over and the season is under way for the Tarleton TexAnns.

It has been just over eight months since the TexAnns have hit the court in a meaningful contest, but that will change Saturday when Tarleton travels to San Antonio to face Incarnate Word in its season opener.

And just for the record, Head Coach Ronnie Hearne is 5-0 in season openers for Tarleton.

This is the second consectutive season that the TexAnns have opened their season with the Cardinals.

In their home opener last season, Tarleton used a strong second half to keep Hearneís streak alive with a 53-48 victory.

The TexAnn leaders from last seasonís match-up with the Incarnate Cards are not on the active roster this season.

Brittnie Haley led the TexAnns in last yearís victory in points and rebounds, but will miss the entire 2008-09 season with a knee injury.

The TexAnns will be led into the season by returning starters, Sonya Sundberg and DíAnna Dingler, as well as a host of freshman.

The TexAnns will tip-off the season at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
