The Jaguars will play a doubleheader against Laredo Community College at Riverside Stadium in Riverside Park.


“This will give more people the opportunity to find out how the Jaguars do in their first game this season,” said Ashley Walyuchow, UHV interim athletic director. “I’m sure it will be exciting.”


Future baseball and softball games may be broadcast on KVNN and on the Internet, via the UHV athletics site, Walyuchow said.
