Rio Hondo’s Mike Zuniga Headed To UTSA

RIO HONDO — Rio Hondo senior Michael Zuniga is currently focused on getting back to the UIL state track and field meet, but he can now take solace knowing the road will continue on after high school.

Zuniga will join the University of Texas at San Antonio track and field program this fall after inking his national letter of intent Friday afternoon at Rio Hondo High School.

Signing on with the Roadrunners isn’t only an extension to Zuniga’s throwing career, but a dream come true.

“It’s a goal I had since I started throwing in the seventh grade,” Zuniga said. “I always knew I wanted to be a collegiate athlete — it’s what I’ve always worked for.”

Zuniga will throw shot put, discus and hammer throw.
