LUBBOCK, Texas - A strong contingent of future Red Raider and Lady Raider athletes put on a show last weekend at the Texas UIL State Track and Field Championships in Austin. Texas Tech signees combined for 17 medals and two team championships throughout the two full days of competition.
"What a great showing from our signees totaling 17 medals at the Texas State High School Meet this past weekend," Texas Tech Head Coach Wes Kittley said. "It gives me a lot of hope for the depth we are trying to create, especially at the conference meet and beyond for next year."
Both future Red Raider Dee Paul (Munday High School) and future Lady Raider Paetyn Revell (Desoto High School) helped guide their teams to state championships. Paul won gold in each the long jump, 300-meter hurdles, 4x100 relay and 4x400 relay. Meanwhile, Revell won silver in the triple jump.
