UHV Softball To Finish Conference Play & H.S. Softball Playoffs

Posted: Updated:

UHV softball wraps up regular season play Friday afternoon on the road.
The Jaguars have clinched at worst the third place spot in the Red River conference standings. Head coach Lindsey Ortiz told me UHV could end up as high as first place in the conference when all the regular season action is done Saturday. The Jaguars have won ten in a row, including a sweep over the University Of The Southwest that clinched for them a spot in the conference tournament. I talked with two Jaguars about that. Said outfielder Gabby Davila, "It was great. We've been working toward that since the beginning of the season. We worked really hard, played a lot of games, and we're just super-excited." Said conference player of the week, Emily Flores, "It's very important to us. We had a slow start but we're starting to peak. We hope to keep going up from here and clinch some more."
UHV softball wraps up the regular season starting Friday afternoon at 2:00. It's a doubleheader at Our Lady Of The Lake.
