HOUSTON - It was another day for breaking records as the University of Houston Track and Field team completed Day one of the Howie Ryan Invitational and Multi's. More than half of the student-athletes who competed for the Cougars set personal bests and program season bests.

Senior Cassie Wiley placed fourth in her first pentathlon of the season. She recorded a personal best time of 9.22 in the 60-meter hurdles to start the meet. Wiley took the lead in the competition when she won the high jump clearing 1.73m (5'-8"). Her mark tied her indoor best and the third best mark in The American.

In the shot put, Wiley once again tied her personal best throw with a distance of 12.22m (40'-1.25"). She kept her lead with a long jump mark of 5.28m (17'-4"), but was knocked to fourth after an 800-meter time of 2:41.31.

Freshmen Emiliano Troitino and Christopher Morales sit tied with 2560 points in the heptathlon after four events today.

Both Morales and Troitino competed in their first 60m dash, long jump and high jump events as Cougars. Both athletes also set personal bests in the shot put; Morales threw a 12.59m (41'-3.75") while Troitino threw a 11.77m (38'-7.50").

Nicole Benton and Justine Price set their own personal bests in the women's weight throw. Benton placed third in the meet with a throw of 18.19m (59'-8.25") to break into the Cougars top five all-time performance list. Her throw is also the fifth best in the conference and a season best by any Cougar. Price followed with a fourth-place throw of 17.97m (58'-11.50"), the sixth best throw in conference.


 

 

Senior John Fortune threw a personal best in the men's weight throw competition with a mark of 16.74m (54-11.25).

Senior Karley King led the field once again in the women's pole vault as she cleared a mark of 4.02m (13'-2.25") to win the meet.
