UST Celt Makes the Cut for Character & Community

Noah Martinez, senior infielderNoah Martinez  of University of St. Thomas-Houston, a senior infielder from New Braunfels, Texas, has been selected the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Character and Community male Student Athlete of the Week for the week beginning February 14.

The SCAC Character & Community award honors the efforts of student-athletes who excel in the field of athletics and serve their campus and community.

When Noah isn’t hitting baseballs or stealing bases, you can find him actively engaged in his school and baseball community. In his free time, he coaches youth baseball and helps prepare the next generation of players who will follow him. It helps him share his love for the game — He gives back to the sport which he cares so deeply about.

Noah is also heavily invested in UST. As a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), he represents the University in the community by supporting various charities and events. 

As a founding member of the baseball team, which started in 2019-2020, he believes it's important to give back. It helps him share the culture that he and his fellow teammates are working so hard to build. St. Thomas has shaped Noah into the person he is today, though his investment and commitment to the program.

“When I first committed here, we didn’t have a baseball team, we were just the nobody's” Martinez said. “But it has helped me grow into a leader through the process.”
