Meanwhile, the Longhorns men are No. 4 in the national rankings and No. 2 in the women’s most recent polls.

Looking For To Texas vs Texas A&M Dual
“This is the first time we’ve been able to put our whole team on the track this outdoor season,” said A&M head Coach Pat Henry on the school’s website. “We had testing on Thursday and everybody came back negative and lots of our athletes are receiving their vaccines so that’s going to help us down the road.
“We’re taking nearly 100 athletes so we got a lot of people getting on the track.”
Meanwhile, hosts Texas will also showcase strong teams for this meeting as they seek to maintain their national status.
Headlining the list of stars on the women’s side slated to compete is Tara Davis, who is coming off an outstanding 7.14m collegiate-record long jump performance at the 2021 Texas Relays last weekend.
The Longhorns will also feature Kevona Davis, Kynnedy Flannel, Madeline Vondra, Davicia Patterson, Elena Bruckner, Stacey Ann Williams, O’Brien Wasome, Charles Brockman III and Steffin McCarter among others.
