    The Cougars concluded a busy weekend as they split up to compete at the Mt. Sac Relays, the LSU Alumni Gold, and the J. Fred Duckett Twilight.

    At Mt. Sac, senior thrower Rick Fenton threw a school-record breaking distance of 62.08m (203-8) in the men’s hammer throw. In his home state, Fenton threw the record-breaking mark on his sixth and final throw to place fourth overall.

    Junior Ngozi Onwumere led the way for Houston at LSU with two personal bests. Onwumere ran 23.57 in Group A of the women’s 200-meter dash to place 10th and leaped to a fifth-place finish (5.76m; 18-10.75) in the Invitational Division of the women’s high jump.
