Congratulations to Maverick men for winning SBC track and field championship

Give a big shout-out to the UTA men's track and field team for winning the Sun Belt Conference Indoor Championships on Tuesday. The women's team finished as the conference's runner-up.

UTA's victory was the 10th men's conference indoor title in school history and the sixth under coach John Sauerhage.

The Maverick men won an indoor title in 2014, which was part of UTA's lone triple crown: championships in cross country and both indoor and outdoor track and field.

In October the men's cross country team won its fourth conference title in five years.

The outdoor track and field season starts Friday-Saturday, March 17-18, with the TCU Invitational in Fort Worth and UTA's Bobby Lane Invitational Saturday, March 25, at Maverick Stadium. UTA hosts the Sun Belt outdoor track and field championships Friday-Sunday, May 12-14 LEARN MORE.
