Cougar football wasn't the only team to secure new recruits for next season.

UH soccer signed two new fielders Thursday, both high school seniors from Texas.

Leslie Guevara hails from Sam Houston High School. The 5-6 forward was named to the all-district team each of her four years as a varsity letter-winner. She earned District MVP in 1999 and was ranked second among All-Greater Houston scorers. Guevara holds the Tigers' school record with 29 goals and four assists in seven games.

"(Guevara) has the amazing ability to beat players one-on-one," head soccer coach Bill Solberg said. "She is a natural goal scorer and a very hard worker who will bring excitement to an already awesome forward line."

Along with her athletic accolades, Guevara holds a 4.0 GPA.

Tamara Hawkins comes to Houston from Plano. A 5-2 center midfielder, she was named to the 2000 All-District team. Hawkins played with the Plano Senior High School Wildcats for four years.

"(Hawkins) has unbelievable vision on the field and she will definitely bring high intensity and a new level of play to our team," Solberg said.

Hawkins leads the Plano team in scoring and is in the top three in assists for the Wildcats. She is also a leader in the classroom, maintaining a 3.8 GPA.

The two will see competition as UH freshmen in Fall 2001.
