HOUSTON - Three freshmen of the University of Houston track and field team have been included in the new collegiate U20 season best list compiled by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). 

Brian Barraza has made a name for himself in the school history books as he broke the 3000- and 5000-meter run records in back-to-back weekends. The El Paso, Texas, native is the No. 1 freshman in the 5000m with his personal best time of 14:23.29 set at the Tyson Invitational last weekend. Barraza is also ranked No. 5 in the 3000m after he set the record time of 8:16.84.

Hurdler William Gibbs has also been added to the list and is the No. 3 freshman in the 60m hurdles. His personal best time of 7.94 is the seventh best time among other freshman in the nation. The Houston native recorded the top mark at the Houston Indoor Opener. 

Deer Park, Texas, native, Cameron Cornelius is the No. 2 freshman shot putter in the nation. He threw a personal best of 17.61m (57-9.5) during the Houston Indoor Opener to gain recognition.

The USTFCCCA has gathered initial information and developed a listing of season-best marks by collegiate U20 athletes in advance of the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships.

Those born 1995 or later (1996, 1997, 1998) have the potential of competing on the world stage at the event that will be held in Eugene, Ore., July 22-27.

Team USA for the championships will be decided through the USATF Junior Championships to be held July 5-6 also in Eugene.
