UHV Soccer Players Earn National Academic Honors

Posted: Updated:

Three UHV soccer players pick up national NAIA academic honors Friday.  Women's soccer senior Kelly Cook and junior Jaiden Lauterbach were named 2017 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes on Friday.

The UHV duo was among 614 women’s soccer student-athletes to receive the honor.

Cook has seen limited action on the field for the Jaguars during her two years with the Jaguars due to injury. A defender from Dripping Springs, Cook has appeared in seven games and has one assist.

Lauterbach, a midfielder from Fort Worth, has competed for three seasons with the Jaguars and has two goals and four assists in 45 games.

UHV men's soccer senior Reece Hannigan became the first UHV men’s soccer player to earn recognition on the Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete team on Friday.

Hannigan was recognized along with 492 other student-athletes as members of the 2017 men’s soccer team.

Hannigan is a four-year member of the UHV program where he was twice named the Red River Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year. The Jaguars reached the confernece tournament all four years under his guidance as the defender finished his career with 18 goals and three assists. He is also the UHV all-time career leader in starts for the men’s soccer program with 65.

This past season he helped guide the Jaguars to an 11-3-2 finished and their first-ever trip to the NAIA National Championship Opening Round Tournament.

In order to be nominated by an institution’s head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.
