AUSTIN, Texas - The University of Houston track and field team concluded the third and final day of the NCAA Division I Track & Field West Preliminary Rounds at Mike A. Myers Stadium Saturday evening. Six student-athletes and two relay teams advanced to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore. on June 5-8.

Due to the inclement weather yesterday, the men's hammer throw was moved to today. Senior Rick Fenton fouled his first throw of the day, but unleashed a school-record breaking toss of 65.69 (215-6) on his second attempt to punch his ticket to Nationals. This is the fourth time this season the San Clemente, Calif., native has broken the school hammer throw record.

The Cougars will be sending both the men's and women's 4x100 relay teams to Eugene. The women's team, comprised of Sade-Mariah Greenidge, Kiersten Brewer, Alicia Perkins, and Ngozi Onwumere, finished third in heat one with a season best time of 44.40. With the team's placement in their heat, they received an automatic qualification to the finals. On the men's side, Leshon Collins, Issac Williams, James Arnett, and Isaiah Sweeney ran the second fastest time of the season (39.98) to advance.

In addition to running the 4x100m relays, Greenidge, Williams, and Onwumere will compete in individual events at the NCAA Championships. Greenidge will compete in the women's 100-meter hurdles after running a time of 13.34, while Williams will take on an elite field of runners in the 110-meter hurdles. Williams placed second in his heat with a time of 13.87. Onwumere ran a time of 23.58 in the women's 200-meter dash to punch her ticket to the finals.

 

 

Sophomore John Horton will advance to his first Outdoor Nationals after tying his personal best of 15.66m (51-4.5). This trip to Nationals will be the second straight for the Copperas Cove, Texas, native.

Despite running the second best time of the season, the men's 4x400-meter relay (Dominique Charles, Eric Futch, Garrett Hughey, and Anthony Coleman) fell short of advancing to Eugene. The team clocked in at 3:12.45.

UP NEXT
The Cougars will have two weeks to prepare for the NCAA Division I Track & Field Championships at the historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. on June 5-8.
