UHV Signs Three More Student-Athletes
Jaguars Add Men's Golf, Soccer Players
UHV athletics adds three new student-athletes for next season.
University of Houston-Victoria men’s golf coach Garrett Adair today announced the signing of Roy Moya Jr. of Three Rivers to the men’s golf team beginning with the 2020-21 season.
Moya tied for second at the 2018 Class 2A UIL State Tournament posting scores of 75-71-146. He was a state qualifier all four years in high school and joins the Jaguars from Eastern Wyoming College.
He earned the team’s MVP honor all four years at Three Rivers and was the 2018 South Texas Player of the Year.
While at EWC his team won back-to-back regional titles, played in the National Junior College Athletic Association National Champions in Florida in 2019. He was also named all-region second team this past season.
He twice made the Dean’s List while at EWC.
“After spending two years away from Texas in the cold, snowy weather of Wyoming, I wanted somewhere close to home,” said Moya on his commitment to UHV. “I also wanted to work on my golf game and it just feels right at UHV. The coaches seem as eager to teach as I am to learn more about the game.”
Moya hopes to one day become a golf pro as well as teach others the game of golf.
He is still undecided on his major and course of study at UHV.
University of Houston-Victoria men’s soccer coach Adrian Rigby today announced the signing of two more transfers to the men’s soccer team beginning with the 2020 season.
Bosco Irankunda, a transfer from State Fair Community College in Missouri, and Jorge Aguilar, a transfer from Southwestern Assemblies of God, are the latest players to sign with the Jaguars.
Irankunda is a 2018 graduate of Wheatley High School. He played in 15 games with SFCC scoring three goals, including two game-winning goals.
He was his team’s top scorer in both middle school and high school, while his Wheatley team reached the regional finals.
“Bosco is a transfer from State Fair Community College,” said Rigby. “He is an explosive midfielder who can beat you on the dribble. He will bring experience to an already seasoned team. We’re looking forward to having Bosco come in and challenge for a spot on our starting 11.”
Irankunda was an A and B student in high school and finished with perfect attendance.
“I choose to represent my hometown and try to bring trophies home,” said Irankunda on his commitment to UHV.
He plans to study international business while attending UHV.
Aguilar is a 2017 graduate of Life School of Oak Cliff in Dallas and played in 12 games with SAGU, including seven starts.
In high school he tallied 86 goals with 34 assists to finish with 206 points. He was named his district’s most valuable offensive player his sophomore and junior seasons and first team all-state as a junior.
“Jorge is a talented winger/center mid we picked up in the spring,” said Rigby. “He comes into the program with college playing experience, His sharp touch and high soccer IQ will be dangerous for any opposition.”
He was all-district first team for three straight seasons and was his team’s single-season goal record holder with 34 goals as a sophomore.
“I chose to transfer to the University of Houston-Victoria because I wanted to be able to play soccer at a very competitive level all the while getting a good education,” said Aguilar.
He plans to study business management while attending UHV.
