PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - The women's 4x400-meter relay team led the University of Houston's final day of the 120th Penn Relays as they took first in the collegiate final Saturday evening.

Brittany Wallace, Ngozi Onwumere, Mayorca Young and Terracia Moody ran their fastest time of the season to take the collegiate title with a time of 3:34.95. The foursome moves up to 17th in the nation, 13th in the region and recaptures the top time in conference standings.

"I am very excited for our women on their victory today. Winning here is very prestigious," head coach Leroy Burrell said. "They really excelled in a competitive race and I believe that this bodes well for the postseason."

The last time the Cougar Women won the collegiate final was in 2012 (3:38.86). Seniors Wallace and Onwumere were apart of that team. Last season, the team missed making the finals.

"To win my second time is awesome, but means even more this time because I'm with a team who wants it as bad as I do. Especially since it's our (Ngozi, Terracia, Brittany's) last year," Landsdowne, Pa., native Wallace said.

Freshman Cameron Burrell finished second behind Adolphus Nevers of UTech (Jamaica) in the men's 100-meter dash with a 10.32. Burrell ran his second fastest time of the season is a heat that ran faster than the men's Olympic development finals. Sophomore LeShon Collins followed in fourth place with a time of 10.42. 


 

 

The men's 4x100m relay team of Collins, Burrell, Errol Nolan and James Arnett took fourth place in the Championship of America race with a season best time of 39.70. This is the team's best finish in 10 years. 

Sophomore Issac Williams ran a 14.33 to finish eighth in the men's 110m hurdle championships.
