Cougar athletes to watch for solid AAC play

We all know that football is the biggest sport during the fall. But as all athletes enter into American Athletic Conference play in the coming weeks, there are some important names we should all be familiar with.


Redshirt junior Kadi Kullerkann is off to a great start this year with 228 total kills in 12 games before AAC play. Kullerkann now averages 19 kills a game and is only getting started.

Senior Natalie Keck has kept the Cougars ahead of their game by keeping the scores of their opponents low. Keck was named defensive player of the week to start September and, in just 12 games, has racked up 230 digs.

Soccer: After transferring from Tennessee Tech, junior goalkeeper Jordan Brown is making a good impression here at UH by making it easy for the Cougar offense as she has logged 35 saves in just 7 games.


Freshman Angela Lorenzo not only earned her first collegiate win on Friday during the Solinco Houston Open, she ended up winning the singles tournament title. In just her first year, Lorenzo has plenty of time to continue leading the Cougars to victory.

Senior Charlotte Phillips made UH history this past weekend in the Solinco Houston Open as she became the first Cougar to ever win three matches in one day. Going into Sunday’s play undefeated, Phillips help lead the Cougars to an overall tournament record of 14-5.

Men’s Golf: Senior Kyle Pilgrim is making the most of his final year at UH as he led the Cougars in their third place finish at the Wolf Run Intercollegiate this past weekend. Pilgrim finished sixth individually for the tournament with a score of 219.

Women’s Golf: Freshman Yuka Kajika finished out the Mary Fossum Invitational last week with a score of 223, landing her in third place for the tournament. As a team, the Cougars finished fourth overall.
