Athletics

HKS Sports & Entertainment group was selected to design UTSA’s new athletics complex, which will be located at the 125-acre-UTSA Park West Campus (approximately two miles west of Main Campus). The work will include soccer and track and field stadiums, as well as the initial utilities, road and parking infrastructure. The project will be completed in multiple phases with the first including the design and construction of a 1,000-seat-soccer stadium, 1,000-seat-track and field stadium and 500-space-surface parking lot. The facilities will be used for public events, as well as serving as home base for Roadrunners sports teams.

Men’s Basketball

UTSA finished the 2011–12 campaign with an 18–14 overall record and earned the No. 5 seed for the Southland Conference Tournament with a 10–6 league ledger, the program’s most league wins since 2004–05. The Roadrunners now have registered 76 victories in the last four seasons under sixth-year-head coach Brooks Thompson, an average of 18 per year. A trio of players was honored by the Southland, as sophomore forward Jeromie Hill and junior guard Melvin Johnson III were named second-and-third-team all-conference-, respectively, while junior guard Kannon Burrage picked up honorable mention accolades.

Women’s Basketball

Sophomore Judy Jones earned honorable mention all-Southland-Conference accolades for the UTSA women’s basketball team this past season. The Monroe, LA., native averaged 10.1 points and a team–leading 7.0 rebounds per game for the Roadrunners. In league play, she upped those averages to a team best 11.6 ppg and 8.5 rpg. Jones closed the campaign with a career high 29 points and 11 rebounds against UT Arlington.

Men’s Golf

Sophomore Ryan Werre was named February’s Southland Conference player of the month after registering a 71.67 stroke average and a pair of top-15-finishes, including tying for fourth with a career-best three–underpar-213 at the Rice intercollegiate. The Redcliff, Alberta, native opened his spring season with four consecutive top-15-showings.

Women’s Golf

The Roadrunners won February’s Islanders Classic by 40 strokes, giving the program multiple victories in a season for the first time in program history (UTSA won the Alamo Invitational Title in November). Senior Summer Batiste and sophomore Taylor Newlin claimed the top spot on the individual leader board and Batiste was honored as February’s Southland Conference player of the month following the event.

Men’s Tennis

The Roadrunners achieved the program’s first–ever national ranking in February, and that came on the heels of a 4–3 upset victory at No. 36 Rice on Feb. 11. it was UTSA’s first win against a ranked opponent since March 3, 2007, when the Roadrunners defeated No. 75 San Francisco.

Men’s Track & Field

Head Coach Aaron Fox led UTSA to an unprecedented seventh consecutive Southland Conference Indoor Championship in February. Led by a league record-tying-six individual champions, UTSA scored 134 points, which was the second highest total in school history. The victory broke the Roadrunners’s tie with Lamar, which won six crowns in a row from 1980–85, and the half dozen gold medals pushed the program’s all–time total to 62, of which 38 have come during Fox’s 10–year tenure.
