UHV Baseball & Men's Golf News

Posted: Updated:


UHV baseball continues a busy week at Riverside Stadium Tuesday night. The Jaguars gained a split of their doubleheader last Saturday against Prairie View A&M. After losing 7-2 in the opener, the Jaguars bounced back, scoring seven runs in the first three innings to get a 7-6 victory in the nightcap. I asked two Jaguars how they felt about splitting a doubleheader against an NCAA Division I team. Said pitcher Ross Bludau, "Good. It gives us a lot of confidence playing against a division one in Prairie View. Prairie View has a good ballclub and we played well." Said pitcher Jonathan Jimenez, "That's always a good thing. A win's always a good thing, especially against a good team like that. They have some big guys that can hit the ball pretty far and we just managed to keep them in the ballpark for the most part." 
UHV baseball returns to action Tuesday night at 6:00. They'll host the St. Mary's Rattlers at Riverside Stadium.

With two players posting sub-par scores and four of the five players finishing in the top seven Monday, the University of Houston-Victoria men’s golf team got of to a red-hot start at the South Padre Intercollegiate hosted by Sterling College.

The Jaguars posted a team score of one-under par 287 and were 17 shots ahead going into Tuesday’s final round. Oklahoma Wesleyan is in second at 304 and Central Christian is third at 320.

UHV’s Cristian Esparza leads the field at 3-under par 69, while teammate James Rollins is tied for second at 2-under par 70. Juan David Coy posted a 73 at the par-72 South Padre Island Golf Club and is in sixth, while Adrian Saenz is tied for seventh with a 75. 

Preston Woodward, the Jaguars fifth man, is in with an 81.

Terry Strickland, playing as a medalist for UHV, is in fifth place with an even-par 72.
