UHV soccer coach Adrian Rigby announced the signing of two Houston area recruits to play women’s soccer for the Jaguars beginning in the fall of 2020.
Joining the Jaguars for the 2020 season will be Judith Arias of Houston and Kelsey Hayes of Spring.
Arias had a stellar career at Kempner High School where she was a three-time all-district forward. She earned first-team recognition as a sophomore and senior and was named to the second team as a junior.
“Judith will be a bright young talent on next year’s squad,” said Rigby. “She is a dynamic midfielder who is great at 1v1 attacking and defending. She is extremely confident with her ability which will be huge going into the season.”She twice received academic all-district honors and was named the team’s Defender of the Year in 2018.
She is a three-sport athlete having played volleyball along with competing in powerlifting.
Arias plans to study physical therapy while attending UHV.
Hayes lettered three years at Oak Ridge High School and is expected to be a defender for the Jaguars.
