The UHV softball team will have little time to prepare before opening Red River Athletic Conference play in the 2018 season.
In releasing their 2018 schedule today, head coach Lindsey Ortiz and the Jaguars will compete in two tournaments before opening RRAC play Feb. 16-17 at Huston-Tillotson.
The Jaguars begin the season at the Galveston Tournament on Feb. 2-3 where they will play five exhibition games against junior college opponents.
The team then travels to Fort Worth on Feb. 9-10 for the Cowtown Classic, before visiting Huston-Tillotson for its conference openers.
Following their conference-opening series, the Jaguars will travel to Schreiner for a doubleheader on Feb. 22 and take part in the Gulf Shores Tournament on March 2-4 before turning their attention back to conference play.
Following the Gulf Shore Tournament, the Jaguars' schedule will include mostly RRAC play with only two non-conference matchups on the schedule the rest of the way.
The Jaguars will face defending national champion Oklahoma City in a doubleheader on March 13 in Farmers Branch and take on Division II Concordia Texas in a pair of games April 3.
The rest of the schedule has UHV hosting Texas A&M-Texarkana on March 9-10, Texas College on March 27-28, LSU-Alexandria on April 6-7 and the University of the Southwest on April 20-21.
The Jaguars have road games at Langston on March 23-24, Jarvis Christian on April 13-14 and Our Lady of the Lake on April 27-28.
