Houston cruised to a fourth consecutive Conference USA Men's Outdoor Track and Field Championships title on Sunday, while the UH women finished fourth highlighted by a first place finish from Karley King in the pole vault.

Head Coach Leroy Burrell's men's squad has won each outdoor title since 2009 and continued its dominance with a 38.50 point win on Sunday.

The Houston men had finishers in the top eight all evening, highlighted by Errol Nolan's third consecutive 400-meter crown. The junior ran 45.56 to best UTEP's Abiola Onakoya who ran 46.08. In fact Nolan was one of four Cougars to score in the event, joining Kevin Furlough (third - 47.09), Xavier Boyd (sixth - 47.42) and Dominique Charles (seventh - 47.94).

Nolan continued his weekend success with a championship in the 200 meters. The junior ran 20.78, easily defeating runner-up Anthony Wright of UTEP who ran 21.38.

Thomas Lang added to his great weekend by winning the triple jump title. The senior jumped 51-03.75 to best teammate John Horton who finished second with a leap of 49-01.50. Malcolm Howard also scored for the Cougars jumping 47-01.75 to claim fifth. Earlier this weekend Lang finished second in the long jump and also finished third in the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 14.34.

On the women's side Houston finished fourth overall led by great relay production from the 4x100 meter (second) and 4x400 meter (second) squads as well as the title from King.

King vaulted 12-09.50 to complete a yearly sweep in the event after also winning the pole vault crown indoors in Birmingham.
