Texas School for the Deaf Athletics

HS Boys Track & Field at TAPPS State Meet - May 6-7, 2016

They competed at Baylor University in Waco, Texas last weekend (May 6-7, 2016).

Unofficially, two Deaf relay records were broken at the State - the boys’ 4x100 relay and 4 x200 relay teams.  We, the coaches, are currently working on sending the paperwork in for approval as the new two Deaf World Records!  What a huge accomplishment by this team!
