AUSTIN, Texas — Ashtin Zamzow’s amazing athletic feat was history in the making right before everyone’s eyes at Mike A. Myers Stadium

Zamzow became the first-ever Longhorn to capture the National Championship in the heptathlon as she broke or tied four of her own personal records during the record-setting win. It marks only the second time in all of NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship history that an athlete won the event on their home turf.
