Local Bodybuilder To Make Pro Debut & UHV Baseball Loses

Posted: Updated:


A local personal trainer has a major event in his career, and his life, coming up Saturday. Quincey Whittington started entering amateur bodybuilding competitions last year with the goal of qualifying for a pro event. Last July, at the Team Universe event in New Jersey, the former Cuero All-District running back placed second. That high finish automatically qualified him for his pro bodybuilding card. That was just Whittington's third amateur meet. He tells me it usually takes eight amateur meets for a bodybuilder to earn a pro card.  I asked him why he got started in bodybuilding. "I sat down with my athletes and I came up with it. I was motivated to prove to them what I've said, that you can accomplish anything. That was my motivation. Then I started winning and my name got bigger in fitness and I figured I can't stop now. I have to keep going. I'm chasing the Olympia this year, man."  
Quincey Whittington makes his pro body building debut this Saturday at the City Limits Championship in Waxahachie. 

The Texas A&M-Kingsville Javelinas twice batted around Tuesday evening and rolled to an 11-1 victory over the University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars at Nolan Ryan Field.

The Javelinas (25-8) scored nine of their 11 runs with two outs and had every starter pick up at least one hit in the game.

The Javelinas struck first in the first inning scoring on a two-out wild pitch for a 1-0 lead, before adding three more in the second.

Wildness proved to be the difference in the three-run second as a two-out walk started things for the Javelinas. Donovan Lewis drew the two-out walk, stole second and scored on an RBI double by David De La Cruz.

After another walk, De La Cruz would steal third and score on a throwing error. Three more walks would plate another run and put the Javelinas up 4-0 over the Jaguars (11-24).

The Javelinas would again send nine batters to the plate in the fourth to blow the contest open with a five-run inning, before adding two more in the fifth to record the 10-run mercy rule victory.

The Jaguars' biggest opportunity came in the sixth as Nolan Maciejeski (FR/Tomball, TX) opened the inning and moved to third on Chase Tamez (JR/Cypress, TX)'s double. After a fly out, Jacob Atkinson (JR/Harlingen, TX) walked to load the bases. After a strike out, the Javelinas had Tamez picked off second, but when Maciejeski broke for home, the Javelinas threw wildly to home allowing Maciejeski to score the Jaguars' lone run.

Maciejeski, Tamez and Chase Almendarez (SR/Round Rock, TX) collected the Jaguars' three hits on the night, as Maciejeski had an infield single in the  third and Almendarez an infield single in the second.

UHV returns to action on Friday and Saturday when they host Texas A&M-Texarkana in a three-game Red river Athletic Conference Series. Friday's single game is a 2 p.m. start, while Saturday's doubleheader begins at noon.
