Reyna is UHV’s new softball career doubles leader

Reyna has hit 43 doubles in her career as a Jaguar and broke the previous record held by 2019 graduate Michelle Revels

VICTORIA, Texas —  University of Houston softball player Ashley Reyna is the new career double leader after she hit three doubles in the Jaguars’ double-header against University of the Southwest in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Reyna has hit 43 doubles in her career as a Jaguar and broke the previous record held by 2019 graduate Michelle Revels. Reyna is back after missing eight games due to a sprained MCL (medial collateral ligament in the knee) in practice and was held out to prevent a tear so that she could play her final season at UHV. She was able to play an extra year due to covid-19 giving seniors an extra year of eligibility. The first baseman is thrilled at how well her time at UHV has gone from now setting a record and to making it to the world series last year.

It’s very exciting, I mean it was really hard at first being [injured] seeing everyone be able to play and I wanted to be with them, said Reyna. I know on the bench, I am there cheering them on. So now that I was able to come back I can be the person they all wanted me to be as a leader, I wouldn’t want any other role.

Reyna is in her first year of graduate school and is studying administration, supervision and educational leadership. She eventually wants to be a principal or superintendent.
