NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND
- Although the Longhorns added three athletes to its volleyball program this week, two – Melanie Parra and Adhuoljok Malual – won’t be able to compete in 2021 due to coronavirus-related travel issues, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “In a press release, Texas cited “travel difficulties” related to the coronavirus pandemic for the delay. Parra is from Sinaloa, Mexico, while Malual hails from Italy. A 5-9 outside hitter, Parra is a member of Mexico’s national team. Malual, who turns 20 this fall, is a 6-2 opposite hitter. Both Parra and Malual will be classified as freshmen in 2021.”
- Texas soccer’s Julia Grosso earned the honor of making the Big 12’s preseason team, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “A junior midfielder, Grosso was the only Longhorn who received enough votes from the Big 12’s coaches. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State led the 11-player team with three honorees apiece. Grosso was a first-team all-conference pick during the 2019 season. The eight goals that Grosso scored as a sophomore were tied for the team lead at Texas. She ranked second among the Longhorns in assists (eight) and total points (24). Grosso scored her eight goals on only 15 shots.”
