Texas women’s team is one classy bunch
In a world often jaded with negative sports stories, I just wanted to say I had a chance to sit next to the Lady Longhorns basketball team at the Big 12 Tournament. They are a wonderful group of young women and a great representative of their school and state. Good luck to them in the NCAA tourney.

Center has done a great job with UT tennis
Two years ago, the Texas men’s tennis team lost five outstanding seniors due to graduation. Tremendous talents, including All-Americans and Davis Cup players. We won the NCAA national doubles championship for the first time in over 70 years.
This huge loss of talent coincided with historic Penick-Allison being demolished to make room for the medical facility. It’s unbelievable the job Michael Center has done to prevent a downward spiral. He has recruited some of the best talent in the nation with no facility to sell. We are still a top 10 team with a real shot at a national championship. Great job to this amazing coach!

Bohls should stick with sports, not politics
Re: “Bohls: Smart still learning on the job,” March 5
In your Sunday, March 5, edition, Kirk Bohls went over the line when describing Shaka Smart’s problems at UT by saying that they were made worse by Smart’s “regurgitation of his players’ anti-Trump comments.”
Mr. Bohls is paid to write sports. If he chooses to proclaim his own political views, please put him on your editorial page.
