    HOUSTON - The University of Houston track and field team completed the second and final day of the Howie Ryan Invitational and Multi's at Yeoman Field House on Saturday. The women's 4x400 relay team topped the competition with a 3:48.97 performance.

    In the men's 60-meter hurdles, redshirt junior Leon Bullock finished fourth overall with a time of 8.27. Bullock's time gives him the sixth fastest time in Conference USA. On the women's side, sophomore Alicia Perkins placed fifth with an 8.76 finish.

    The men finished strong in the 200-meter dash. Freshman Eric Futch won his second gold of the season with a time of 21.78, while fellow freshman Lashon Collins crossed the line at the 21.96 mark to finish third overall. The duo now sits with the seventh and eighth fastest time in the conference standings. In the women's 200-meter, sophomore Kiersten Brewer took home a fourth-place finish with a time of 25.28.

    Going into today, senior Kevin Johnson sat tied for first place in the men's heptathlon. Despite finishing tied for fifth in the pole vault (3.60m; 11-9.75) and eighth in the 1000-meter run (3:07.53), the Baytown, Texas native, pulled through to claim the top prize with a personal best of 4858 points, while his teammate, freshman Sean Spiehler, rounded out the top-three with a personal best of 4630 points.

    The women's 4x400 relay team, consisting of Ngozi Onwumere, Kelli Hardnett, Mayorca Young, and Brittany Wallace, ran the race with ease and never looked back. They clipped the other competition by a three second margin to finish with their third fastest of the season.
