UHV Softball Player Earns National Honor

Posted: Updated:

A UHV softball player gets national academic recognition. The University of Houston-Victoria sophomore Michelle Revels was named to the 2017 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District 4 College Division Softball Team on Thursday.

Revels was one of four UHV players nominated for the award which is voted on by members of CoSIDA. Also nominated were Madeline Herrera, Torey Dumont and Jordan Hoefling.

This is the sixth year of the expanded Academic All-America program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, II, and III in the University Division, while the College Division team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.

The award recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances and athletically and in the classroom. To be nominated, student-athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s games at the position listed on the nomination form, must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 GPA on a 4.0 scale and completed one full calendar year the their current school.

Revels, a sophomore third baseman from Corpus Christi, is a Kinesiology major with a 4.0 GPA. 

She was named a 2016 All-Red River Athletic Conference scholar athlete and a three-time UHV President’s List recipient where she has maintained a 4.0 GPA every semester.

On the field, she is currently batting at a 345 clip with a .399 slugging percentage and a .406 on-base percentage. She has scored 34 runs and has 23 RBI and eight doubles. In the circle, she has a 9-9 record with a 2.36 ERA in 22 games.

Revels is now eligible to advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot where a first, second and third team will be selected later this month.
