In the USA Outdoor Championships, former Texas Longhorn Gonzalez placed third in the 100m with a time of 10.91.

After announcing that Bubba Thornton would retire in August, the Texas Athletic Department did not waste any time in naming a new head coach to take over for coach Thornton. On Thursday, the Longhorns made an in-program hire and promoted associate head coach of the men's track team Mario Sategna to head coach of the program. Sategna will be in charge of both the Men's and Women's Track and Field programs.

Women's Athletics

The Texas Women's Athletic program finished fourth in the Capital One Cup Final Standings. North Carolina won the 2012-2013 Capital One Cup with 140 points. Texas finished with 92 points. The points were earned when the Texas Volleyball team won the NCAA Championship, the Softball team finished third in the final USA Today/NFCA Division I Softball poll, and the swimming and diving team placed ninth in team standings at the NCAA Championship meet.
