Lindsey Ortiz guided the UHV softball team through its 2014 campaign as the interim head coach. The team compiled a 33-15 record and advanced to the program's third-straight trip to the NAIA Softball Championship Opening Round Tournament.
Friday, the interim tag was removed. Ortiz was officially named the UHV head softball coach, the university announced in a press release.
Ortiz has been a part of the UHV softball program since its inception in 2008. She played in 97 games and finished with a .281 career batting average with 45 RBIs and 34 runs scored.
The League City native still holds the career fielding percentage record at .990 and shares the single-game hits record with five.
After two seasons as a player, Ortiz joined Keri Lambeth on the coaching staff. Lambeth left the program last year after leading the Jaguars for their first six seasons.
