UHV Softball Award Winners & Big UHV Baseball News

Posted: Updated:

Before their tripleheader sweep of Texas College Tuesday, two UHV softball players earned Red River conference honors.
Alyssa Dial was named player of the week, and Kelsey Tidrick earned pitcher of the week honors. Last week, Tidrick went 2-0 with an 0,72 era in three appearances, with a complete game win over Langston. Tuesday, the Calhoun-ex was the winning pitcher in game one over Texas College. Dial had to sit out the tripleheader with a sprained knee. I talked to both award winners. Said Tidrick, "Getting the award was amazing. I didn't expect it. I pitch my butt off every single time I'm in the circle." Said Dial, "Getting awarded with the player of the week means so much to me. I've been working hard and I know my teammates have been working hard. They've been pushing me to be at my best. I give the credit to them because without them I couldn't have won that."

University of Houston-Victoria’s Alyssa Dial and Kelsey Tidrick were recognized Tuesday with Red River Athletic Conference play of the week honors.

Dial, a senior from Victoria, was selected the RRAC Player of the Week, while Tidrick, a sophomore from Port Lavaca, was named the RRAC Pitcher of the Week.

Dial, who plays the outfield, helped paced the Jaguars to a 3-2 week against NCCA Division III for Schreiner University and conference foe Langston University. She compiled a 0.412 batting average going 7-for-17 at the plate with two doubles, a triple, four RBI and three runs scored. She had a 0.647 slugging percentage and a 0.444 on-base percentage. 

Tidrick compiled a 2-0 record in the circle with a 0,72 ERA in three appearances. She pitched in both games against Schreiner and then tossed a complete game in a win over Langston. In 9.2 innings she allowed one run on six hits and three walks, while striking out six. Opponents compiled just a 0.200 batting average against her on the week.

Due to an inclement weather forecast in the Tyler area for this week, the weekend Red River Athletic Conference series between the University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars and the Texas College Steers has been moved to Victoria’s Riverside Stadium.

The Jaguars and Steers will meet in a 5 p.m. contest on Friday and then wrap up the series on Saturday with a noon doubleheader.

Community Bank of Victoria will be sponsoring Free Ticket Weekend for all games the weekend so everyone is invited out to catch all the collegiate action with free admission to all the games on Friday and Saturday.

“Thanks to the generosity of Community Bank of Victoria, everyone can come out and support the Jags this weekend and watch some free baseball,” said UHV athletic director Ashley Walyuchow.

All seats for the games will be general admission.

The Jaguars enter the contest with an 8-20 record and a 4-8 conference mark, while the Steers are 16-11 and 3-9 in conference.
