Milby Lady Buffs soccer captain Stephanie Valdes (MF-#58) is headed down 59-South to Victoria to play in Lady Jaguar red for the University of Houston at Victoria.
The school competes at the Division II level in the NAIA’s Association of Independent Institutions conference, competing with schools including Ashford, Jamestown, Rochester, Fisher, Georgia Gwinnett, West Virginia Tech, Kentucky Christian, and CSU-San Marcos.
Last season the Lady Jags finished 7-11-0 overall and were eliminated from the conference tournament by California State University at San Marcos.
Shortly after Steph secured a spot with the Lady Jags, she lead her team to a 5-0 victory where she scored four goals and contributed one assist. She was featured in the 2/11/13 edition of the Houston Chronicle as the honorable mention for Houston Athlete of the Week. Way to go Steph and good luck in college, make us proud. Go Buffs!
