Men’s Tennis Successful Season


If you did not get a chance to see your UTA Men’s tennis team play this season, you missed out. With the most successful season in history, they are on their way to the NCAA tournament in May. With the leadership of their only senior and their captian, Carlos Arbiz, they have racked up an 18-10 record, the best in school history. If you see them in campus, wish them luck!

Health Services hosted a health fair to educate and inform students on safety over spring break. UTA police, UTA SMART and many vendors were in attendance. Students were given t-shirts and give-aways while learning about safety procedures during the break.

UTA CrossFitters


Staying fit is important. Most UTA students interested in fitness seek work out options at the Maverick Activities Center. With many classes offered, most students find exactly what they are looking for. But, some are looking for more. CrossFit is an emerging sport with fitness as the main goal. Each year the winners of the CrossFit Games are awarded the titles of “Fittest Man” and “Fittest Woman” alive. The sport has rules and regulations and its coaches must have certifications.  Some of UTA’s own have found a passion for CrossFit and a gym just five minutes from campus.
