PREVIOUS RESULTS
The Cougars head into Friday's competition with one meet under their belts. Houston competed at the Texas A&M Reveille Invitational Dec. 12. Sophomore Stephanie Aldea won the 5,000-meter race in dominant fashion as she clocked in the second-fastest time for a UH runner in the event (17:39.92). Houston swept the pole vault competition led by senior Alex Bentley who set a meet record when he cleared 4.93m (16-02.00). Sophomore Ciera Johnson earned first place in the 800-meter with a time of 2:15.98.

ABOUT LEONARD HILTON
Leonard Hilton was a four-year letterman for the University of Houston from 1967-1971. Hilton was an All-American distance runner and led the Cougars with a third-place finish in the three-mile at the 1971 NCAA Championships. Hilton, who graduated from Houston's Austin High School, was the first native Texan to run a sub-four minute mile. Hilton continued his success after graduation by becoming a two-time American champion in the mile and a member of the 1972 Olympic team competing in the 5,000-meters.

Hilton earned his degree in engineering from UH and later served as vice president of operations with Kinder Morgan Energy and Enron Corp. Hilton passed away July 3, 2000 at the age of 52 from pancreatic cancer. The Leonard Hilton Memorial has been run in his honor since 2001.

UP NEXT
Yeoman Field House will host the Carl Lewis Indoor Open on Saturday, Jan. 16. The prestigious high school event begins at 10 a.m. The Cougars will travel to Albuquerque, N.M., for the New Mexico Cherry and Silver Invitational on Jan. 23.
