PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Sunny, spring weather and a full crowd on day two of the 120th Penn Relays gave the University of Houston track and field team a pristine stage for competition.

The men's 4x100-meter relay team of LeShon Collins, Issac Williams, James Arnett and Cameron Burrell have qualified for the Championship of America final tomorrow at 1:50 p.m. with a time of 40.34, the sixth fastest time of the meet. They will take on the four of the nation's top 20 teams in LSU (No. 3), Auburn (No. 6) and East Carolina (No. 19). Houston's fastest time of the season (39.85) is currently No. 18 in the nation.

The last time Houston made the Championship final was in 2004 and the last time the team won the title was in 1989 when now head coach Leroy Burrell was apart of the team.

Collins and Burrell have also qualified for the championship final in the men's 100m dash. Collins had the third best time of the day (10.46) while Burrell followed with the fourth best time of 10.47. The two will race tomorrow at 3:45 p.m.

Williams recorded the third fastest time of the day in the men's 110m hurdles with a time of 13.85, his second fastest time of the season.
