I think the waterproof version of this mascara is better for this because it last longer cuz of the sweat and heat! I live in Florida and use it since it's always so humid! The only downfall in that it drys quickly but so does many other waterproof mascaras!
I live in Texas as well and I'm in school for 8 but have track, volleyball, band, and sometimes dance practice directly afterwards and this mascara isn't that bad. It doesn't flake at all actually it's really good
