UHV Softball Preview & Women's Golf Signs Player

Posted: Updated:


UHV softball's next big conference series will start a day later than planned due to weather issues. Peyton Branham's three-hitter helped the Jaguars avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of LSU-Alexandria last weekend. The Jaguars are now 8-7 in the Red River Conference, putting them in a tie for fourth with the University Of The Southwest. Two Jaguars told me how big that game three win was to avoid a sweep.  Said Branham, "It was really big for us, especially for our seniors. We really wanted to get that win for them even though they swept us the first day. We came back and we got it for them and for our team. It was really good." Said third baseman Lisa Sosa, "It was very important after losing both of those games. We had to come back and do what we can to come out with the W. That's exactly what we did. We fixed what we can and we adjusted and it was a big deal." 
Weather has pushed UHV softball's conference series at Jarvis Christian. The series now starts with a doubleheader Saturday afternoon at 2:00. 

University of Houston-Victoria head golf coach Christi Cano today announced the signing of Kelly Swanson of Houston to the women’s golf team.

Swanson, a senior at Cypress Creek High School, earned all-district honors this year as well as earned a berth to the regional tournament. She also was named all-district and advanced to regionals in 2016.

She has had success not only on the golf course, but in the swimming pool as well as she was a member of the Cypress Creek 2016 state championship water polo team.

Swanson has also found success in the classroom where she has been on the honor roll all four years, serves as social officer for the National Honor Society and has been academic all-district for four years.

“I chose UHV because I liked the location and Coach Cano and the program she has created for the gold team,” said Swanson in making her commitment. “I think UHV will be a place where I can enrich my academics as well as improve my golf game.”

Swanson plans to study kinesiology/physical therapy while attending UHV.

Swanson is the second signee for the UHV women’s team this year.
