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.
