Shorthorn Shots of the Week 10/10

Another crazy busy week at The Shorthorn with that always stressful dash of school in the mix. It was a good week overall and now that internship deadlines are coming up I'm aiming for quality over quantity in the photo department. Met a lot of interesting people and am looking forward to finding some on campus to highlight as soon as there is a break in my course load. Gotta love how school always seems to get in the way of career creativity, but thats the art program for you. Well I will let the images speak for themselves this week, enjoy.
Larry Cotton of Fort Worth swings his trick rope to kill time before Asleep at the Wheel’s performance Saturday at Levitt Pavilion. Cotton learned to use trick ropes at the age of 20 when he was stationed in New York for the Air Force and enjoys teaching kids at the concerts how to use beginner ropes.

Freshman cross-country runner Emily Koenig has produced surprising results for her first year at UTA by winning two of the team’s first three meets so far this season. Head Coach John Sauerhage said that her success thus far is “unprecedented” because they have not had anyone on the team hardly win any cross-country meets besides the conference championship.

Jones said that their current promotion on Monday nights is that 10 percent of sales will be donated to First United Methodist Church in Arlington towards appliances for a needy family.
