Light the Tower: Texas Track and Field Wins National Championship￼
The UT Tower will shine with burnt orange lights and “1” on its sides on Wednesday, March 23 to celebrate Texas Track and Field winning the 2022 Division I men’s indoor track and field championship.
The Longhorns clinched the win by beating North Carolina A&T in the 4×400 meter relay, the championship’s final event. In total, the Longhorns scored 47 points on its way to the title. It is Texas’ first men’s indoor team championship.
