HOUSTON - Preparations have began for the 2014 outdoor season as the University of Houston Track and Field team heads to San Antonio, Texas, for the inaugural UTSA Texas Challenge Invitational this weekend.

UTSA opens its brand new facility, the Park West Athletics Complex, with this weekend's invitational hosting athletes from the University of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Texas Tech.

Admission is free to the public.

ATHLETES TO WATCH
Sprints -
The 2013 Indoor National Champion Errol Nolan returns for his senior season of outdoor competition. He will run in the 200-meter dash as well as legs in the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.

On the women's side, senior Brittany Wallace also returns for her final outdoor season. She has made quite the comeback after suffering a season-ending injury midway through the 2013 outdoor season. She won the 200m and 400m American Athletic Conference Indoor championships and currently owns the 400m school record with a time of 52.93. This weekend, Wallace is set to run legs in the women's 4x100m and 4x400m relays.

Sophomore LeShon Collins also returns for his second outdoor season with the Cougars. Collins had an impressive indoor season as he competed in the 60m dash during the NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships, placing ninth and receiving All-America honors. He was the first to break the school record with a 6.60 during the indoor home opener. Collins also broke into the all-time top five list with a personal best time of 21.04 in the men's 200m. This weekend, he joins Nolan in the relay events.

Cameron Burrell enters his first outdoor season with the Cougars. The freshman standout just returned from the national meet where he placed sixth in the men's 60m finals, earning his first All-America honors. During the prelims, Burrell broke his own school record with a time of 6.54. He previously broke the school record on the same track during the New Mexico Cherry & Silver Collegiate Invitational (Jan. 24-25). Burrell will join Nolan and Collins in the relays this weekend.

Throws -
Deer Park, Texas, native Cameron Cornelius is another up-and-coming Cougar to watch this season. The freshman recently won the inaugural American Athletic Conference shot put crown as he threw 17.68m (58'-0.25"), jumping into the all-time top five list. Cornelius is scheduled to compete in the shot put and discus throws.
