UHV's Akapo earns AII weekly honor

UHV sophomore Sheilat Akapo earned her second Association of Independent Institutions Conference's weekly honor this week after being named the AII Conference Female Athlete of the Week for Oct. 14-20.

Akapo, a forward from Houston, became the first UHV soccer player to record two hat tricks in a season in a 6-1 win over Huston-Tillotson on Saturday. She had her first hat trick in a season-opening win over the University of the Southwest. She also recorded an assist in the win over HTU and her seven points were a single-game UHV record.

Akapo also scored the lone goal for the Jaguars in a 2-1 loss against NCAA Division III Texas Lutheran on Sunday.

Akapo has also set single-season records for goals (13), points (29) and game-winning goals (3) for the Jaguars with one regular season game to play.
