UCA’s Taylor part of SLC event

Jessie Taylor, who set the new UCA single-season RBI record for the Bears’ softball program in the 2014 season, represent UCA at the Southland Conference’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee retreat near Dallas.

At the Southland SAAC retreat, Taylor, the president of the UCA groupm and her fellow representatives went through team-building exercises and jont projects. “We talked about community service opportunities within the conference and what’s working for schools and what isn’t, as well as ways that we can make our individual groups more efficient,” she said.

The representatives also discussed changes in NCAA policies as well as the conference tournaments that the SLC hosts for each sport.

The UCA SAAC will be collecting can tabs to benefit the Little Rock Ronald McDonald house during the upcoming semester. Collection containers will be set up on campus and around town for those interested in helping.

USA baseball roster set

After a week of trials and exhibitions in North Carolina, Greenbrier’s Paxton Enloe was not selected to the 20-man roster for the USA Baseball 15-and-under team that has begun international competition.

Wallace was one of 40 players from through the country chosen for the tryouts.

UCA soccer adds players

Two more players have been added to the University of Central Arkansas’ men’s soccer roster.

They are midfielder/forward Pepe San Roman and forward Andre De Giorgi.

Adding Pepe and Andre to the mix will help continue our tactical development and bring a good technical and tactical level to the group,” said coach Ross Duncan. “They have both played at a very high level and will bring experience and understanding. We ask a lot of our team tactically and I have no doubt both of them will hit the ground running. We have gotten to know them both well through the recruiting process and are excited to add their personalities to what is already a tight family.”
