UHV Softball Signs Pearsall Native

Fernandez Earned All-District Honors

UHV softball adds a former high school standout from Pearsall.
University of Houston-Victoria head softball coach Lindsey Ortiz today announced the signing of Pearsall High School graduate Michaela Fernandez for the 2020 season.

Fernandez, who graduated this past year from Pearsall High School, helped guide the Lady Mavs to the bi-district playoffs and a runners-up finish in District 29-4A.

She was named the team’s co-offensive MVP this past season and earned recognition on the All-District 29-4A second team as an outfielder. This past season she compiled a .471 batting average with 30 RBI, eight doubles and 33 singles.

She was just as successful in the classroom where she was a member of the National Honor Society and finished in the top 15 percent of her class.

“When I toured the school everyone made me feel welcomed and like they were interested in me,” said Fernandez on making her commitment. “I am not just a number like in many other colleges. UHV Feels like home to me.”

Fernandez plans to study marketing while attending UHV.
