In his fourth year on the Web.com Tour, former UTA golfer Zack Fischer earned exempt status after racking up four top-25 finishes and finishing as a top-75 money winner in 2016.  His wife, Katie, has served as his caddie the last couple of years.  Together, the duo form a unique partnership both on and off the course. 

Alex Wood of PGATour.com recently posted this story and interview with Zack and Katie about their special relationship.

UTA director of golf Stuart Deane visited with host Andy Maher on Golf Australia's new "Inside the Ropes" podcast Wednesday.  He talked about a variety of topics, including his career, his $1 million professional golf victory in 2006, the UTA golf program and his recent appearance in the AT&T Byron Nelson.

When UTA director of golf Stuart Deane tees off Thursday morning at the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson, he will have a familiar face carrying his bag.  Former Maverick golfer Zach Galliford will serve as Deane's caddie throughout the event.

A native of Borth, Wales, Galliford recently concluded his career at UTA.  The 2016 Welsh Amateur champion played 102 total rounds during his UTA career with 31 scores of par or better.

2017 Track Alumni

UTA track and field alumni from four different decades gathered last weekend to cheer the Mavericks to victory at the Sun Belt Conference Outdoor Championships at Maverick Stadium.  The weekend kicked off Friday with a social at the R Bar and Grill at the Hilton Arlington and continued with the conference championship meet and a dinner from David's Barbeque.

The alumni enjoyed watching the UTA men clinch the Sun Belt Conference Triple Crown, which included championships in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track.  The women's team claimed a dramatic 4x400-meter relay victory to take third place in the 10-team league championships.

UTA's next two baseball games are slated for telecast/stream. The Mavs face off with No. 6 TCU on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. CT with the game televised live on FOX Sports Southwest. Get the complete channel guide, here

The series opener at Texas State on Thursday is also set for a broadcast on Spectrum Sports, available on ESPN3

Even though the start of the 2017-18 basketball season is exactly five months away (the opener is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 11), a few publications are already looking ahead to the upcoming year.  ESPN.com's John Gasaway has compiled an impressive list of mid-major players that are expected to turn heads in 2018.

Among the 10-member list is (not surprisingly) UTA rising senior Kevin Hervey, the 2017 Sun Belt Player of the Year.

UTA senior guard Jalen Jones will be crossing the stage at graduation this weekend, but that will serve as just another chapter as the Cedar Hill native has big plans for his future. He's been working hard to achieve his goal to become a professional basketball player.  Check out this great UTA News video feature by Camille Connor.
