Announcement: American Studies Junior Wins TX Relay Decathlon

If you live in Austin, chances are you noticed that the immediate vicinity of the University was a little busier than usual. That’s because this weekend, the Mike A. Myers Stadium hosted the annual Texas Relays, an enormous track and field competition bringing athletes to Austin from near and far.
