Cougars Wrap Day One of Penn Relays

Junior Justine Price takes third in the women's discus at Penn Relays Thursday.

April 24, 2014

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Junior Justine Price finished in the top three of the women’s discus competition to highlight day one of the 120th Penn Relays for the University of Houston track and field team.

Price threw 49.27m (161’-7”), her third best throw of the season. Teammate Samantha Taylor also had a top finished as she placed fifth in the shot put with a throw of 14.31m (46’-11.5”).

In her first leap of the season, junior Alicia Perkins takes sixth in the women’s long jump competition with a mark of 5.89m (19’-4”).

The women’s 4x100m relay team qualified for the college finals with a time of 45.55, the second best time of the season. Their season best is 44.22 set at the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.

The finals are scheduled for Friday at 12:55 p.m.  Last year, Houston won the women’s 4x100m college final with a time of 44.90.

The women’s 4x400m relay team of Brittany Wallace, Mayorca Young, Ngozi Onwumere and Terracia Moody qualified for the women’s college final with a time of 3:47.35. During the third leg, LSU’s Travia Jones stepped on Onwumere’s foot causing her to fall to her knees. The team will run Saturday at 5:35 p.m.

The Cougar women’s team won the college final in 2012, however, did not make the finals last season.
