The UHV men's soccer team was awarded the NAIA Buffalo Funds Five-Star Champions of Character Team Award on Thursday.
The men's soccer team is the second UHV sports team to earn the Champions of Character team award. The UHV baseball team was recognizes last spring with the Hank Burbridge NAIA Champions of Character Team Award for baseball.
The student-athletes volunteered for two days at the Interfaith of the Woodlands Community Disaster Relief Distribution Center in Conroe. There the student-athletes assisted in unloading supplies from large trailers, sorting pallets of supplies, and distributing to those in need in the affected area.
The group spent time trimming fallen trees and moving tree limbs, as well as helping families whose homes were flooded by the Guadalupe River during the storm.
UHV's Isaac Ramirez-Garcia was also honored at the NAIA Opening Round with the team's individual Champions of Character Individual Student Award.
