UHV Softball & Soccer News

Posted: Updated:

UHV softball starts April action in third place in the Red River Conference.
After starting conference play 1-4, the Jaguars have won six of their last seven Red River games. Last Tuesday, they swept a tripleheader here against Texas College. I talked with two Jaguars about that big sweep.  Said Red River Player Of The Week Gabby Davila, "It was awesome, such a good feeling. We've been working hard out here and we're really coming together as a team. We're starting to click." Said right fielder Angel Davidson, "It was a big deal to us. We needed those wins to get back to where we wanted to be in the conference. Those three wins could help us build momentum going into this conference and the rest of the season."
UHV softball's next-to-last home conference series comes against LSU-Alexandria. It's a doubleheader starting Friday afternoon at 1:00 at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex.

The University of Houston-Victoria men's and women's soccer teams will be in action Saturday when they host spring scrimmages at The Cage.

The UHV women will host a 7v7 event beginning at 9 a.m. featuring three different teams. Games will be held at 9, 10 and 11 a.m., with the semifinals set for noon and the final and third-place match set for 1 p.m.

The UHV men will take to the pitch immediately following the 7v7 event and will host Houston Regals in a 2:30 p.m. contest.

Gabby Davila of the University of Houston-Victoria (Texas) merited a second RRAC Softball Player of the Week award for March 26-April 1, while Gabrielle Heckmann of University of the Southwest (N.M.) garnered the RRAC Pitcher of the Week honor for the same dates. This is the ninth set of conference softball awards for the 2018 season.

Davila went 5-for-7 with six runs scored in a pair of victories over Texas College for the Jaguars. The junior leftfielder from Houston pounded out a pair of hits with a triple in an 8-0 victory, and she was 3-for-4 with a home run in the third game of the day as UHV swept a triple-header. Davila sat out the middle game but still finished with two RBIs and three stolen bases. She climbed to 11th in the RRAC in batting average (.379) and ninth in runs scored (16). The Jaguars stand at 7-6 in the conference standings and 14-13 overall. 

Heckmann started a pair of games against Huston-Tillotson University (Texas) and allowed only two earned runs in 14 innings of work. The junior from Cannon Falls, Minn., took a 3-2 extra-inning loss while tossing eight innings against the Rams. Heckmann followed with a two-hitter over six innings to earn a 4-3 win over HT. For the week, she struck out six and walked two. Heckmann is second in the conference in ERA at 1.62. The Mustangs are now 5-7 in the RRAC and 8-15 on the season. 

Additional player of the week nominees included Graciella Becerra (Jarvis Christian), Adrianna Silva (Southwest).

Additional pitcher of the week nominees included Crystal Fagnana (Jarvis Christian), Jackie Longoria (Houston-Victoria).
