Club sports seasons are ending in Sports & Fitness, but two UHD club teams are playing for a conference championship this weekend to wrap up their fall seasons.

women’s volleyball
The club’s women’s volleyball team is the second seed in this weekend’s Houston Club Sports Conference (HCSC) playoff tournament. The club team is coming off a big win over the undefeated, first-place Prairie View A&M University Panthers on Oct. 26 to end the fall season at 4-1. The Gators beat the Panthers in four sets to force a three-way tie for first place between UHD, Prairie View A&M and Texas A&M-Galveston. Due to the three-team tiebreaker, UHD earned the second seed which includes the top four teams in the conference from last fall season. UHD will compete and aim for the club’s 11e conference championship in club history and their first since the spring 2020 season. The HCSC Playoff Tournament will take place at 10 a.m., Saturday, November 5, at the UHD Jesse H. Jones Student Life Center. This will be the last chance for fans to watch volleyball at the Student Life Center before moving to the UHD Wellness and Success Center in January 2023.

For their second straight season, the club’s men’s basketball team finished the regular season 5-1 and is the No. 1 seed in the Houston Club Sports Basketball Conference (HCSBC) Blue Division. As the No. 1 seed in their division, the club side receive a first-round bye to earn a spot in the HCSBC Final Four tournament on Sunday, November 6. The UHD tournament opponent is only named after the quarter-finals on Friday. The Gators’ semifinal game is at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6 at the Prairie View A&M Student Recreation Center. If UHD wins in the semi-finals, the HCSBC Championship game will take place later in the afternoon at 2:15 p.m. at the same venue. UHD will seek to win the club’s first conference championship in the HCSBC and the first championship since 2011.
