Houston jumped to fourth place in team points with the win. Louisville leads the competition with 39 points followed by Memphis (36), UConn (26) and Houston (24).

After five events scored on the women’s side, Houston sits eighth overall with 15.50 points. SMU leads the meet with 36 points followed closely behind by UConn with 33 points.

Senior pentathlete Cassie Wiley had a great meet, setting personal bests in all five events. She started the meet in third place after running a 9.10 in the 60m hurdles.  Wiley jumped into first place when she cleared 1.73m (5’-8”) in the high jump.
