Bobcat fans had more reason to feel invested in this summer’s Rio Olympics. Former Texas State track and field athletes, Logan Cunningham, of the United States, and Anicka Newell, of Canada, donned their respective country’s flags during the pole vault and for a brief moment, put Texas State on the world stage.

San Marcos sophomore libero Celie Contreras broke onto the scene this year with an outstanding season on the volleyball court.  

Contreras broke the Lady Rattlers’ record for most digs in a season with ease at 701.

Contreras sailed by the record, which was previously held by Kat Reeves, who recorded 559 digs in 2015.

The sophomore tallied 100 digs through San Marcos’ first eight games of the season. Contreras said she knew there was a possibility she could break the record after her strong start to the year.

The ceremony helps ensures that veterans are not forgotten by placing wreaths at veterans’ graves and announcing their names. The wreath ceremonies take place at Arlington National Cemetery and more than 1,000 other locations on land and sea each December.

College Football: What Williams does for State

Damian Williams is head coach Everett Withers’ ideal quarterback.

For evidence, all one has to do is look back at Withers’ starting quarterback over two seasons at James Madison, Vad Lee. Lee, like Williams, was a graduate transfer, but from Georgia Tech. Withers nearly snagged him initially at North Carolina when he served as interim head coach.

Lee was a 6-foot-1 225-pound imposing dual-threat who transitioned from Paul Johnson’s triple option to Drew Mehringer’s (and later Brett Elliott’s) power spread at James Madison.
