After opening the outdoor season with a number of promising performances at the Willie Williams Classic 2021 in Tucson, Arizona, over the weekend, the Texas A&M men’s and women’s track and field teams will turn their attention to the 2021 Texas Relays this week.

The Aggies were without several of their top talents who missed the meet, following their participation in the recent NCAA Indoor Championships, but head coach Pat Henry is set to recall his stars for the trip to Austin for the Texas Relays which runs from March 25-27 at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

“We won’t get to do some of the things that we normally use as learning and progression into the season,” he added. “We’ll be ready to line up and we’ll be ready to get a little bit better than we did [last week].”

Meanwhile, Henry was pleased with the overall performance of Texas A&M at the Willie Williams Classic 2021, which produced several personal bests and school records.

“This meet was for learning about yourself every time you step on the track, it’s also about learning how to transfer training to competition,” he revealed. “You must have intensity in training to compete well on meet day.

“There is a process and you have to follow it and stick to the process. The process changes all the time as the season progresses. You have to come to training with some intent about what you’re doing and I think this group is right there right now and understanding that’s what you have to do.”

The 2021 Texas Relays will be streamed live on the Longhorns Network and WatchESPN and the ESPN App. For more information click here
