HOUSTON - The Houston Cougars track and field team heads to Baton Rogue, Louis. for the LSU Alumni Gold Meet at Bernie Moore Track Stadium. The Cougars have 82 entries scattered over the events featuring world-class competition with Olympians and some of the best collegiate athletes in the nation.

LSU's Bernie Moore Stadium recently completed a nine-month renovation project and this will be only the second time the new surface has been used. The surface installed is Mondo FTX, the same used at the "Bird's Nest" in Beijing, China during the 2008 Olympic Games.

The women's 4x100m relay team, ranked 7th in the NCAA, is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. start. Tai'shea Reese, Whitney Harris, Kalyn Floyd and Grecia Bolton matched their time of 43.81 two weeks in a row at the Mt. Sac Relays (4/15) and Texas Relays (4/9). They rank as the third-fastest Cougar relay in program history.

Chris Carter, ranked as the 7th best in the NCAA in the triple jump, will look to better his 16.11m/52-10.25 mark at the meet. Carter is also scheduled to participate in the long jump and in the 4x100m relay.

The men will have a pair of top-20 400m runners with Errol Nolan and Kelvin Furlough competing in the event. Several Olympians and three other collegiate athletes will be featured in the stacked field. Nolan (45.89) and Furlough (46.29) lead the conference in the event. Nolan will compete in his first 200m of the year as well.

Nolan and Furlough will join with Garrett Hughey and Emmanuel Osadebey to compete in the 4x400m relay. The quartet set a season-low and Conference USA leading time of 3:08.09 last week.

While there is no multievent scheduled for Saturday's meet, Wesley Bray and Megan Frausto will have their work cut out for them as they are scheduled to compete in nine and five events, respectively.

DeMeeka Jones brings her 13.25 seed, good for 18th in the nation, to the 100m hurdles. The Oklahoma transfer will also compete in the 200m and in the 4x100m relay.

Alex Bentley, ranked 17 in the nation in the pole vault (5.25m/17-2.75) will lead the other Cougar vaulters in the meet.

UP NEXT
The Cougars will travel to the world-famous Penn Relays next week in Philadelphia, Penn Wednesday through Thursday. Part of the squad will compete at the Bobcat Invitational at Texas State in San Marcos, Texas on Saturday.
