But the city of Round Rock wasn’t always that way. When Yawn began her role in Round Rock, Texas, she knew the city could offer more, so she spearheaded the efforts to turn Round Rock, a city with untapped sports potential, into the Sports Capital of Texas: the premier, home-run destination for youth and amateur sports. Yawn continues to dedicate her time, energy and coaching to put Round Rock in the playbook.
