If there was any doubt that the Texas state meets are some of the best in the country, I'm here to clear that up for you. The state is saturated with talent up and down in every event. Many of the Texas athletes continue their careers as they move on to the college and professional level.
This weekend, the NCAA Indoor National Championships begin. The entry lists for the Division I meet has been released and it has many Texas high school alumni that have qualified for the meet.
Of the 240 individual spots in the Women's events, there are 24 Texas alumni making up 10% of the total athletes and another 12 relay participants.
On the Men's side, Texas alumni make up 22 of the 240 individual qualifying spots and 15 relay members.
