AUSTIN (AP) — Diplomas, not medals, were the prize for dozens of the best track and field athletes in Texas at the finish line Friday.

Horse show June 12-14 at civic center
The North East Texas Horsemen’s Association will host a weekend of American Quarter Horse Association approved horse shows. The shows will be held June 12 -14 at the Hopkins County Civic Center in Sulphur Springs.
American Quarter Horse shows test horses’ abilities in dozens of different classes and feature exciting events such as reining, barrel racing, roping, pole bending and working cow horse. Additionally, halter classes that judge American Quarter Horses based on balance, muscling and breed characteristics. Other classes include pleasure, western riding, english, trail, horsemanship and showmanship.
