HOUSTON -
Day three of the Texas Relays is in the books as freshman jumper John Horton sets a new personal record in the triple jump and the men’s 4x400m relay and the women’s 4x100m relay advance to the finals on Friday.

“I’m happy with John,” head coach Leroy Burrell said. “He came in here with a lot of promise, we were expecting big things from him. Now that he’s healthy and confident, we’re looking forward to continuingly seeing this type of production from him.”

Horton took second in section B of the triple jump, setting a new personal record with his 15.47m/50-09.25 mark. The jump was the sixth best mark overall among collegiate athletes.

 “We had a few more disappointments than highlights today,” Burrell said. “We still have the women’s 4x100m relay along with the men’s 4x400m relay finals to look forward to tomorrow. I think we can have improved results in both events.”

The men’s 4x400m relay held the fourth fasted time in the preliminaries as Errol Nolan, Kelvin Furlough, Anthony Coleman and Doug Kelley posted a time of 3:09.80 to qualify for the finals. With their mark of 3:08.32, BYU set the top time in the event.

The women’s 4x100m relay, Tai'Reese, Kiersten Brewer, Alicia Perkins and Grecia Bolton posted the sixth fastest time in the preliminary rounds of the event as they ran a time of 44.92. Today was the first time this combination of athletes has competed together in the event.

Nolan and Kelley returned to the track with Mark’quis Frazier and Garret Hughey to help lead the men’s 1600 sprint medley to an eight place finish, as they crossed the line in 3:24.44.

Nate Pineda, Anthony Jordan, Mark Fernando and David Smith added a top-10 finish for the men as they took seventh place in the men’s 4x1500m relay. The group posted a time of 16.33.58.

The women’s sprint medley (Brewer, Bolton, Wallace and Johnson) placed 13th with their time of 4:00.91 as they compete in the event for the first time this season.
Sophomore pole vaulter Karley King placed eighth in the women’s pole vault with her volt of 3.85m/12-07.50.
