Ottawa University inked two new student-athletes to its athletic programs.
The OU softball program announced the signing of Asiah Cavazos for the 2018-19 school year. She is from Schertz, Texas, and attends Samuel Clemens High School.
Cavazos, a third baseman and catcher, played travel ball for Texas Pride under head coach Carlos Rodriguez.
“We are very happy to have Asiah joining our program,” Jay Kahnt, OU head softball coach, said. “She brings a great work ethic and attitude. Asiah is a very good catcher that has the ability to slow down a running game with her arm and quick release. We are looking forward to watching her develop even more over the next four years.”
Cavazos is the daughter of Jessica Martinez and Jonathan Martinez, and plans to concentrate on general studies before deciding on a major.
The OU women’s bowling program announced the signing of Allison Rivers for the 2018-19 season. She is from Gulfport, Mississippi, and attends Gulfport High School.
Rivers lettered in bowling and softball at Gulfport High School. She completed in the Mississippi State Bowling Tournament in 2015 and 2016. Rivers was a three-time first team all-district selection, and three-times was named first team all-state. She was named Kiwani’s International Athlete of the Month for January 2016, and for the month for February 2017. Rivers was named Mississippi State Athlete of the Week for 2017.
Rivers is the daughter of Lynne and Martin Rivers, and plans to major in biology.
