Prior to last Saturdays final day of the Western Athletic Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Arlington, Texas State only had one team title in its new league. Back in February, the womens track and field team took first place at the Indoor Track and Field Championships held in Albuquerque, N.M.
By the time Sunday morning rolled around, the Bobcats needed to add some extra space to their trophy room since the men and women swept the team titles at the conference meet. While the womens crown was hardly in doubt, the men staged a thrilling rally that saw them edge second-place Utah State by six points.
