It was officially announced last Monday that Charlie Reeve has been hired as the new tight ends coach for the Roadrunner football team.
The Roadrunners kicked off spring practice on Tuesday, with the first of 14 practices before the Spring Game on April 15. With the start of spring practice, the official roster was released last week, with all but 17 players returning from the 2011 team.
In their first scrimmage of the season on Saturday morning, the defense held the offense to a single field goal on nine drives, led by newcomer Brian King who had a team-high seven tackles. Sophomore receiver Mike Wilburn was the lone standout on offense, catching seven passes for 100 yards.
After batting .722 (13-for-18) in five games the previous week, junior Ryan Dalton was named to the National All-Star Lineup, presented by the College Baseball Hall of Fame and Diamond Sports.
UTSA started off the week with a 9-1 loss to #7 Rice, leading up to the weekend series at Stephen F. Austin where the Lumberjacks won the first two games of the weekend before sophomore Michael Kraft led the Roadrunners to a 7-3 win on Sunday, pitching the first complete game of his career.
The UTSA softball team traveled to Boise, Idaho over the weekend for the SpringHill Suites Invitational, where they would ultimately lose four of their five matchups. Their lone win came on Saturday against future WAC opponent Seattle by a final score of 8-3, led by strong performances from seniors Caitlyn Ivy and Nikki Goff.
The Roadrunners return home this weekend for the first time since February 14 after playing 22 straight road games.
The UTSA men’s tennis team started the week with an impressive 7-0 victory over UMBC before falling to #29 Texas Tech, 6-1, as Texas Tech’s Gabriel Wanderley withdrew from the match due to illness, giving the Roadrunners their lone point of the match. The team then faced future conference foe New Mexico State on Saturday, narrowly beating the Aggies 4-3.
