    Drew Fucci from Texas State was the 1990 NCAA decathlon champ.

    I was referring previously to Keith Stewart and Robert Baker (he of 3:58 1500 deca). I guess neither of those is correct.

    I've also heard that SMU is getting their men's program back. Any truth to this?

    There is also a local guy in the Hall of Fame in the high school at which I teach who may have gotten 8000. I'm not sure if he began at WT.

    A guy I went to high school with in Amarillo got close, but I'm not sure he actually pegged 8000.

    They've had a poor to mediocre cross program for a while, but the gals have really stepped it up as of late with a few imports. They beat ACU the other week. WT's football program is quite strong right now, and surely some potential sprinters and throwers populate the squad. I think a guy named Darren Flowers was named as coach. If I got the name right, does it ring a bell for anyone?

    A bit of good news for college track

    With the recent demise of several college track programs it is good to hear that West Texas A&M is restoring their men and women's programs. The AD is also saying all the right things ...he wants to be competitive with conference rival and Div II powerhouse Abilene Christian and that they hope to make use of kids from the football team. I wish them all the best.
