ARLINGTON, Texas – The UT Arlington student-athletes took a break from the stresses of practices and workouts to enjoy the UTA Athletics Welcome Back Social Tuesday. This annual event gives all fall, winter, and spring Mavericks a chance to relax before classes and competition begins.

J. Gilligan’s Bar and Grill, located on East Abram, and Danny’s Pizza, located on West Arkansas, provided these hardworking UTA student-athletes a delicious meal before they start their busy school year. UTA Athletics hosted the event in College Park Center and the highlight of the evening was the team talent show.

As can be expected with most athletes, the team talent show was fiercely competitive. Men’s and women’s tennis was the overall winner this year with their creative rendition of the Broadway act Stomp. Baseball took second and volleyball placed third in the talent show.

UT Arlington volleyball is the first of the Mavs teams to start their season as they take on Savannah State Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. in CPC in the kickoff game of the UTA Hilton Invitational.
