CTR Students Win TexITE Traffic Bowl

The football rivalry may be in hibernation, but UT Austin transportation engineering students beat Texas A&M – as well as UTSA – in the Texas Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Traffic Bowl on May 29, ending A&M’s four-year win streak.

The competition was held during the Texas District’s spring meeting.

The winning team, comprised of CTR students, won $4,000 to travel to Seattle in August to compete in the International Collegiate Traffic Bowl tournament at the ITE Annual Conference.

The winning team was comprised of team captain Tyler Beduhn, Megan Hoklas, and Jake Gutekunst, master’s students at CTR. The team alternate was Solomon Nyanhongo.

The team was coached by Ph.D. student, Meredith Cebelak, and CTR researcher Mason Gemar. Stephen Ratke and Matt Reiter assisted in team preparation.

“The team played really well, and I’m so proud of how they did. They deserved the long-awaited victory,” said coach Mason Gemar.

Until the sports rivalry is put back on the calendar, these transportation students will continue the Texas tradition in the TexITE Traffic Bowl.
