College Track: How sweep it is!

Prior to last Saturday’s final day of the Western Athletic Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships, Texas State only had one team title in its new conference. Back in February, the women’s track and field team took first place at the conference meet.

Well, you might as well add two more to that tally after the women added an outdoor crown to their haul and the men followed suit.

“Once the women got a taste of it, I knew the men wanted it too,” Boone said. “It’s just that competitive nature that I love so much about this team.”

Texas State’s women held a comfortable lead from early on in the meet, while the men rallied on the last day.

“It was a total team effort from each team,” said Boone, a second-year head coach. “We couldn’t have been in that position if it weren’t for our throwers, our jumpers, our sprinters, our middle-distance runners or the long-distance guys.”

Once the Bobcats clinched both titles, all that was left to do was douse Boone in Gatorade. Boone never saw it coming.

“They really did get me on that one,” Boone said. “You see it on TV all the time and you think you’d need it coming, but I didn’t.”
