It was a good year for Texas Longhorns athletics.
Sure, the football team was about as mediocre as they come.
But there were also plenty of bright spots across the Forty Acres, including seven top-3 finishes, nine top-5 finishes, and 13 top-10 finishes in NCAA Championships this year.
Here’s Texas Sports’ rundown of the list: “The Longhorns registered NCAA team titles in Men’s Swimming and Diving, Women’s Tennis and Rowing. Texas also recorded a NCAA runner-up finish in Volleyball, posted additional Top-3 NCAA performances in Women’s Swimming and Diving (third), Men’s Tennis (tied for third) and Baseball (tied for third), as well as Top-5 NCAA finishes in Women’s Basketball (tied for fifth) and Women’s Golf (tied for fifth). UT added Top-10 NCAA performances in Men’s Outdoor Track and Field (tied for sixth), Women’s Outdoor Track and Field (tied for seventh), Women’s Indoor Track and Field (eighth) and Softball (tied for ninth).”
Not bad, in other words.
Let’s keep the momentum going next year.
In the meantime, HOOK ‘EM.
