Zaylie Calderon named UTEP Student-Athlete of the Week

Zaylie Calderon (UTEP)

Former Mountain View standout Zaylie Calderon was named UTEP Student-Athlete of the Week on Tuesday. Calderon pitched a 5-inning shutout to run-rule LA Tech 8-0 on Saturday.

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know.
