TYLER - Whitney Simmons is arguably the best athlete in UT Tyler's history. She's a 3-time national champion, a 7-time All-American, and she currently holds the NCAA D3 national hammer throw record.
On Wednesday, she received another honor that very few athletes get. Tyler Mayor Martin Heines declared July 12th as "Whitney Simmons Day" in the city of Tyler.
