HOUSTON - University of Houston track and field women take second to host Nebraska, while the men take third, at the 2012 Adidas Classic on Saturday in Lincoln, Neb., at the Devaney Center Indoor Track. The Cougars claimed five individual events and one relay.

"I thought as a team we fought," head coach Leroy Burrell said. "On the women's side, we stood toe-to-toe with the Big 12 champions all the way to the end. A lot of people went out there and fought. That's what we need going into the future."

The Houston women swept the 60m competition as Whitney Harris, Grecia Bolton, Tai'shea Reese and Kiersten Brewer took the top-four places, respectively. Harris also took first place in the women's 200m race.

The women also claimed the top-three places in the 60m hurdles as freshmen Sade-Mariah Greenidge and Alicia Perkins took places one and two, and senior DeMeeka Jones took third.

For the men, senior sprinter Isaiah Sweeney won the men's 60m dash, while junior college transfer Mark'quis Frazier took third. Frazier went on to take first place in the men's 200m dash, where last year he was the NJCAA Junior College 200m champion.

The men's 4x400 relay comprised of Errol Nolan, Kelvin Furlough, Xavier Boyd, and Doug Kelley took first over Nebraska and Iowa of the Big Ten in addition to Wichita State and Air Force. With the win, Nolan became a two-time event champion as he also took first in the 400m with a time of 47.17.

"I think we are gelling nicely for this time of the season, Burrell said. "We have a lot more we need to do, but the key for us right now is to stay focused and continue to work on pursuing our goals and staying healthy."

UP NEXT

The Cougars return home to host the 2012 Houston Indoor Invitational and Multi's on Friday Jan. 27, inside Yeoman Fieldhouse.
