AUSTIN, Texas - The University of Houston track and field team will travel to Austin to compete in the 86th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays on Thursday through Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas. The Cougars have competed in this prestigious meet since the early 1960s.

Action begins Wednesday with the decathlon and heptathlon, but no Cougars will be competing in these two events. On Thursday, the multi events will conclude and the preliminary rounds of the 400-meter hurdles and 4x800-meter relays will begin.

Friday and Saturday are both full days of activity starting in the morning. Events begin at 9:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., respectively. Friday will conclude at 9:05 p.m. with the university men's 4x1500-meter relay, while Saturday's competition will finish at 4:05 p.m., with the Cleburne Price Jr. 4x400-meter relay. Both days will feature college and high school division races and field events.

Admission to the Texas Relays is free of charge on Wednesday and Thursday. Tickets for Friday and Saturday are available through the Longhorn ticket office at 800-982-2386 or by visiting Texasboxoffice.com. An all-session pass is available for $30 (reserved) and $20 (general admission). Single-day tickets are priced at $15 (reserved lower east stadium) and $10 (general admission).

The Cougars traveled to cross-town rival Rice to take part in the annual Victor Lopez Classic. Senior Rick Fenton threw a school-record of 61.78m (202-8) in the men's hammer throw on Friday. The San Clemente, Calif., native erased the previous record of 57.55m (188-9) held by William Krokey in 2008.

Fellow senior Brittany Wallace topped her competition in the women's 400-meter dash after running a personal best of 52.48. With this time, Wallace is currently ranked No. 1 in the nation.
