FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Eleven individuals and two relays are bound for Eugene, Ore., as they qualified for the 2014 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships during the West Regional meet this weekend in Fayetteville, Ark.

The men's 4x100-meter relay team of LeShon Collins, Errol Nolan, James Arnett and Cameron Burrell were the first Cougars of the day to punch their ticket to the NCAA National Championships in Eugene, Ore. The four ran a season best of 39.59, the eighth fastest time of the day.

The men's 4x400m relay of Xavier Boyd, Dominique Charles, Jermaine Fyffe and Nolan have also grabbed a spot at the national championship meet as they ran a season best of 3:07.09. It has been two years since the men's 4x400m relay has been to Eugene.

Also qualifying individually, Burrell will represent Houston in the men's 200m dash. He recorded a personal best time of 20.78 in the quarterfinals, the best time of the season by a Cougar.

In the hurdles, sophomore Issac Williams snagged the last qualifying spot in the 110m hurdles with a time of 13.81. Junior Sade-Mariah Greenidge moves on to the national meet after she finished with the second fastest time in her heat (13.20) and an automatic qualifying spot. This is the second NCAA Championship qualifier for both athletes.


 

 

John Horton joins his fellow teammates as he punched his ticket to the national championships in the triple jump. His third leap of 15.79m (51'-9.75") was a personal best for the junior and sealed his fate into the finals. Horton entered the finals with the sixth best mark of the day and finished ninth. This is Horton's third straight year he has qualified for nationals in the triple jump.

For the second time in 10 years, the women's 4x100m relay will not be headed to Eugene. The squad of Bria Carter, Kiersten Brewer, Alicia Perkins and Ngozi Onwumere ran a 44.84 in the quarterfinals, two places away from qualifying for nationals. The last time the Cougar women have missed the national bid was in 2009.

Senior Cassie Wiley cleared 1.72m (5'-7.75") in the women's high jump to move into a jump-off between 11 other athletes for the last two spots to qualify for nationals. She just missed the mark and finished tied for 13th.
