Playing on South Padre Island is key to our mission to #RallyTheValley behind UTRGV Athletics.”

Conque has placed an emphasis on bringing UTRGV Athletics to the entire Rio Grande Valley, spearheading a Brownsville initiative that has seen athletics bring student-athletes, coaches and/or staff to the Brownsville campus on a bi-weekly basis. UTRGV Athletics also formed a partnership with the City of Brownsville to bring more events, including competitions, camps, clinics, and fan days to Brownsville.
