CC Winn Mavericks Erick Lopez and Marychelo Flores were recently recognized as recipients of the 2017 Minute Maid Grand Slam for Youth Scholarship.
This scholarship recognizes students athletes who played baseball or softball throughout their high school experience. Each student will receive an amazing $5,000 scholarship from Minute Maid and the Houston Astros to help them with their college expenses.
The Houston Astros Foundation, not only recognized the students, but their College Advisor as well. The Houston Astros applauded Winn's College Advisor, Maria Luisa Uriegas, for not only transporting the students to the interview, but also encouraging and motivating them to go for this opportunity. It was a tremendous feat as this is the first time in 10 years that the program has had two recipients from the same town, let alone the same campus!
Marychelo and Erick were both vital members of their teams and will be greatly missed next year on and off the field.
Go Mavericks! Go Astros!
